We have a Linux box and
is installed on
/usr/local/apache-tomcat-5.5.23 ==> $CATALINA_HOME
I have noticed that Tomcat writes to $CATALINA_HOME/work and $CATALINA_HOME/logs directory.
This is an issue for my IT dept, because we don't
monitor those directories for "size". It seems like if left unchecked these could grow unbounded.
I would like to have Tomcat do its stuff in a seperate IT monitored dir on the same box.
Is this possible? or does TomCat code hardcode to base everything off

please change the path of catalina.out in bin/catalina.sh. and also make changes in conf/logging.properties.

The work directory won't continue to grow.
That's where the compiled
code and classes go.
Once all of your JSPs have been compiled, that directory won't grow much.
I use log4j in my application.
With it, I can control not only where my logs go but when they should be rotated out, etc...
Once things are up and running, Tomcat doesn't write much to its own logs.
How to ask a question...
