Subject Need help with Chainsaw and VFSLogFilePatternReceiver
Date Fri, 03 Mar 2006 16:32:17 GMT


I have done extensive searching on this topic and now I am at a dead end.
Just bear with me and I will tell you all the things I have tried.

For some reason I cannot setup a VFSLogFilePatternReceiver in Chainsaw.  It
can never connect to the file.

I am on two windows servers, one running WAS with a file appender running,
and the other with Chainsaw using a VFSLogFilePatternReceiver.  I can sftp
from the command line, on the server with chainsaw, so I know I have
network connectivity, and the file can be accessed by all.

I have downloaded all the necessary jar files.  Here is a listing of my
chainsaw directory:

02/02/2006  06:22 PM           265,396 xstream-1.1.2.jar

I have included the necessary jar files in the chainsaw classpath:
java -classpath commons-logging-api.jar;
alpha-7.jar;xstream-1.1.2.jar org.apache.log4j.chainsaw.LogUI

And I have setup my chainsaw configuration per examples from previous
posts.  Here is my chainsaw configuration.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<!DOCTYPE log4j:configuration >
<log4j:configuration xmlns:log4j="http://jakarta.apache.org/log4j/"
   <appender name="A2" class="org.apache.log4j.ConsoleAppender">
      <layout class="org.apache.log4j.SimpleLayout"/>

   <plugin name="VFSLogFileReceiver"
     <param name="fileURL"
     <param name="timestampFormat" value="yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss,SSS"/>
     <param name="logFormat" value="TIMESTAMP LEVEL [LOGGER] MESSAGE"/>
     <param name="name" value="sampleVFSLogFileReceiver"/>
     <param name="tailing" value="true"/>

      <level value="debug"/>

Anything I might have missed?  In one post I read, can't remember which
one, I think I remember reading that if VFS is correctly configured in
Chainsaw a VFS tab should appear? Exactly where should that appear?  On the
left hand side of chainsaw?  I can now create a VFSLogFilePatternReceiver
inside of Chainsaw, by right-clicking and selecting create new recevier.  A
selection which was not there before.

Any help from anyone would be great, even a "huh, no idea what is wrong"
would help me out.

Thank you,
Giancarlo V. Martinez
