Funnel Web For Tomcat

Can anyone guide me through to use Funnel Web Analyzer v5 for tomcat logs? How should I be able to create log files to be fed to Funnel Web Analyzer?
I have seen people using IIS to create W3C Extended log File format file to feed the Funnel Web.

How can I achieve the similar goal with Tomcat?
Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Swapan

I stumbled across this article on creating custom log format. Perhaps you can find something useful there.

Hi William,

I have made a valve entry in the server.xml for the engine and it seems to be working fine for the Funnel Web Analyzer. I realised that tomcat follows the W3C Extended File Format for log file creation.

Following is the entry.
<Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.AccessLogValve" prefix="catalina_log." suffix=".txt" directory="physical path" pattern="common" timestamp="true"/>

Regards,

Hi William,

As you know I am using Access Logger Valve for Catalina.
Is it possible to have roll over logging based on weekly/monthly schedule. If so do I need to change the params in the "pattern" or the access logger definition.

I am hoping you have some answers.

Cheers,

Swapan

I have stuck with the default roll over so I don't know. If you find an answer, please post it.
