Ability to specify logging file location


(rs1050) #1

Hi,

I looked at the code of elasticsearch, I could not find a way to provide custom logging configuraiton file location. Instead of modifying the installation directory logging config file, I would like to be able to specify -D property with the custom logging file location, similar to how one can profile custom config file:

elasticsearch -f -Des.config=/path/to/config/file

Thank you.
RS.

the title of the post is a bit confusing, apologies. I know how to configure log directory; I meant ability to point to a custom logger configuration file, not the custom log directory.

You can set a path to the config directory, and there set your logging file and other configuration files. See here: http://www.elasticsearch.com/docs/elasticsearch/setup/dirlayout/.
