Additional console logging in 6.3.0


#1

The release notes do not mention it, but having upgraded to 6.3.0 logstash is now producing additional logging to stdout. This appears to me to be the effect of 9076. Looking at the new log4j2.properties there are a couple of console loggers that have been added, but I cannot figure out why that was done. Any ideas?

Sending Logstash's logs to /opt/applications/logstash/logs/loads which is now configured via log4j2.properties

The primary motivation was that having two sets of configurations proved error prone. On more then occasion changes were made that impacted .zip and .tar.gz , but not .deb or .rpm.

I assume you are using the .deb or .rpm (else nothing should have changed), does the console logger cause issues (or annoyances) in your setup ?

It's mildly annoying. But I can just comment out the console appenders, right?

Sure, you can change the logging configuration from the defaults and run with whatever settings you prefer.
