Logging Sensor

Overview

The logging sensor allows to capture loggings of the application into the inspectIT ecosystem. This means you can see logging output within your invocation sequences. 

You can use this feature to add context information about the running transaction or to get detailed information about problems (usually applications do log problems). In addition to that you can jump from a logging output back to the invocation sequence and analyze the complete request as your user executed it.

Configuration

Configuration basics

Please note that the easiest way to get the default configuration is to include the common profile [Common] Logging for log4j to your environment settings.

  • java.util.logging 
  • slf4j logging 

The logging information is right now only available within Invocation Sequences but not as an own view. With   a new aggregation component will be provided.
