Define debug settings

Defining most debug scopes and attributes is dynamic and can be used to enable debugging while the server is running. However, setting some scopes or attributes requires a restart to take effect.

To define the debug settings for a server instance:

  1. In the left pane, expand Environment and select Servers.
  2. On the Summary of Servers page, select the server on which you want to enable or disable debugging.

    The Settings for ServerName page is displayed.

  3. Select the Debug tab.
  4. Expand the scope labeled default or weblogic.
  5. Select the check box for the debug scopes or attributes you want to enable.
  6. Click Enable to enable (or Disable to disable) the debug scopes or attributes you have selected. Click Clear to deselect the debug scopes or attributes that are selected.
  7. After you have defined the desired debug settings for the server instance, select the Logging page to define the general logging settings for this server. See View and configure logs.

    Note: If you create applications to run on WebLogic Server, you can configure your applications to generate messages of severity DEBUG. These messages are never forwarded to the domain log and are intended to contain detailed information about the operation of an application or the server. For more information, see Specify severity level for Loggers.


Not all changes take effect immediately — some require a restart. For more information, see Use the Change Center.
