Subject Re: Tomcat 6 and log4j 1.2.14 - Why No Web Application Logging?
Date Wed, 31 Mar 2010 22:03:29 GMT
Try starting tomcat with the system property log4j.debug set
for example :

export TOMCAT_OPTS="-Dlog4j.debug"

IIRC, log4j will output info about which config file it's using to
standard output.
