How to create size-rotating-file handler in JBoss 7.2 using CLI

There are times when we require a size-rotating-file handler over the default periodic-rotating-file handler. Simply changing the properties in standalone.xml won't do because it will cause synch problem with logging.properties. So to do so we need to execute a series of JBoss cli commands.

First you need to run: jboss_home/standalone/bin/jboss-cli.sh and connect.


//remove the default file handler
/subsystem=logging/periodic-rotating-file-handler=FILE:remove 

//create the new file handler
/subsystem=logging/size-rotating-file-handler=FILE:add(file={"path"=>"server.log", "relative-to"=>"jboss.server.log.dir"})
/subsystem=logging/size-rotating-file-handler=FILE:write-attribute(name="autoflush", value="true")
/subsystem=logging/size-rotating-file-handler=FILE:write-attribute(name="level", value="WARN")
/subsystem=logging/size-rotating-file-handler=FILE:write-attribute(name="append", value="true")
/subsystem=logging/size-rotating-file-handler=FILE:write-attribute(name="max-backup-index", value="10")
/subsystem=logging/size-rotating-file-handler=FILE:write-attribute(name="rotate-size", value="5000k")
