How to decrease or stop logging in Tomcat7 for BI4.1.x / XI 3.1.6

Go to conf/ file (C:\SAP BusinessObjects\tomcat\conf).

By default Tomcat has 5 logs:

  • Catalina
  • Localhost
  • Manager
  • Admin
  • host-manager

         If you want to stop logging of some files just change logging level to “OFF” or delete entries from “Handler specific properties” section. I would recommend to turn it off, so you can enable it later if you want otherwise the Tomcat logging folder get big pretty fast. But if you are completely sure that you will never use than better to rid of it.

Every entry contains three files. To change logging level you have to choose one of logging levels:

      • SEVERE (highest value)
      • WARNING
      • INFO
      • CONFIG
      • FINE
      • FINER
      • FINEST (lowest value)

For example you have: = FINE 

and want to stop all logging. Then write: = OFF

Also you can log all the messages with the level ALL
