Specify messages for standard out

In addition to writing messages to log files, a WebLogic Server instance can print a subset of its messages to standard out. Usually, standard out is the shell (command prompt) in which you are running the server instance. However, some operating systems enable you to redirect standard out to some other location.

For each server instance that it controls, the Node Manager maintains a log file that contains stdout and stderr messages generated by the server instance. The Node Manager creates the server output log for a server instance in the server instance's logs directory, with the name, SERVER_NAME.out, where SERVER_NAME is the name of the server instance. This file is located in DOMAIN_NAME/servers/SERVER_NAME/logs. For more information, see View Remote Start Output and Node Manager Administrator's Guide.

By default, all messages of NOTICE severity or higher are printed to standard out and messages of the DEBUG severity are not printed to standard out.

To specify which messages a server sends to standard out:

  1. If you have not already done so, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Lock & Edit (see Use the Change Center).
  2. In the left pane of the Console, expand Environment and select Servers.
  3. In the Servers table, click the name of the server instance whose logging you want to configure.
  4. Select Logging > General, and click Advanced at the bottom of the page.
  5. Under Message Destinations, in the Standard Out: Severity Level list box, choose the minimum severity level of the messages that you want to send to standard out.

    For information about message severity, see Message Severity.

  6. In the Filter list box, select a filter to qualify log events being sent to standard out.

    For more information, see Create log filters.

  7. Click Save.
  8. To activate these changes, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Activate Changes.
    Not all changes take effect immediately—some require a restart (see Use the Change Center).
