How to configure log in elasticsearch 5.4?


#1

Hi All:
After installing the elasticsearch 5.4 I got an issue with logs, logs are too large (over 30 GB a day). I looked into the log4j2.properties configuration file and found some of the log level are set to "info", so I changed it to "error" as the following:

status = error
logger.action.name = org.elasticsearch.action
logger.action.level = error

appender.console.type = Console
appender.console.name = console
appender.console.layout.type = PatternLayout
appender.console.layout.pattern = [%d{ISO8601}][%-5p][%-25c{1.}] %marker%m%n

appender.rolling.type = RollingFile
appender.rolling.name = rolling
appender.rolling.fileName = ${sys:es.logs.base_path}${sys:file.separator}${sys:es.logs.cluster_name}.log
appender.rolling.layout.type = PatternLayout
appender.rolling.layout.pattern = [%d{ISO8601}][%-5p][%-25c{1.}] %marker%.-10000m%n
appender.rolling.filePattern = ${sys:es.logs.base_path}${sys:file.separator}${sys:es.logs.cluster_name}-%d{yyyy-MM-dd}.log
appender.rolling.policies.type = Policies
appender.rolling.policies.time.type = TimeBasedTriggeringPolicy
appender.rolling.policies.time.interval = 1
appender.rolling.policies.time.modulate = true

rootLogger.level = error
rootLogger.appenderRef.console.ref = console
rootLogger.appenderRef.rolling.ref = rolling

appender.deprecation_rolling.type = RollingFile
appender.deprecation_rolling.name = deprecation_rolling
appender.deprecation_rolling.fileName = ${sys:es.logs.base_path}${sys:file.separator}${sys:es.logs.cluster_name}_deprecation.log
appender.deprecation_rolling.layout.type = PatternLayout
appender.deprecation_rolling.layout.pattern = [%d{ISO8601}][%-5p][%-25c{1.}] %marker%.-10000m%n
appender.deprecation_rolling.filePattern = ${sys:es.logs.base_path}${sys:file.separator}${sys:es.logs.cluster_name}_deprecation-%i.log.gz
appender.deprecation_rolling.policies.type = Policies
appender.deprecation_rolling.policies.size.type = SizeBasedTriggeringPolicy
appender.deprecation_rolling.policies.size.size = 1GB
appender.deprecation_rolling.strategy.type = DefaultRolloverStrategy
appender.deprecation_rolling.strategy.max = 4

logger.deprecation.name = org.elasticsearch.deprecation
logger.deprecation.level = error
logger.deprecation.appenderRef.deprecation_rolling.ref = deprecation_rolling
logger.deprecation.additivity = false

appender.index_search_slowlog_rolling.type = RollingFile
appender.index_search_slowlog_rolling.name = index_search_slowlog_rolling
appender.index_search_slowlog_rolling.fileName = ${sys:es.logs.base_path}${sys:file.separator}${sys:es.logs.cluster_name}_index_search_slowlog.log
appender.index_search_slowlog_rolling.layout.type = PatternLayout
appender.index_search_slowlog_rolling.layout.pattern = [%d{ISO8601}][%-5p][%-25c] %marker%.-10000m%n
appender.index_search_slowlog_rolling.filePattern = ${sys:es.logs.base_path}${sys:file.separator}${sys:es.logs.cluster_name}_index_search_slowlog-%d{yyyy-MM-dd}.log
appender.index_search_slowlog_rolling.policies.type = Policies
appender.index_search_slowlog_rolling.policies.time.type = TimeBasedTriggeringPolicy
appender.index_search_slowlog_rolling.policies.time.interval = 1
appender.index_search_slowlog_rolling.policies.time.modulate = true

logger.index_search_slowlog_rolling.name = index.search.slowlog
logger.index_search_slowlog_rolling.level = trace
logger.index_search_slowlog_rolling.appenderRef.index_search_slowlog_rolling.ref = index_search_slowlog_rolling
logger.index_search_slowlog_rolling.additivity = false

appender.index_indexing_slowlog_rolling.type = RollingFile
appender.index_indexing_slowlog_rolling.name = index_indexing_slowlog_rolling
appender.index_indexing_slowlog_rolling.fileName = ${sys:es.logs.base_path}${sys:file.separator}${sys:es.logs.cluster_name}_index_indexing_slowlog.log

But it doesn't help. Do I need to change some values in the log configuration? Or I need to start this node to get the configuration work? Thanks a lot!
