Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-9325) solr.log written to {solrRoot}/server/logs instead of location specified by SOLR_LOGS_DIR
Date Wed, 12 Oct 2016 19:44:20 GMT


Jan Høydahl commented on SOLR-9325:

I welcome any other comments on this approach. Plan to commit on friday.

The only weakness I can see with this now is
* If Solr is started in another way than through bin/solr, people will need to supply {{-Dsolr.log.dir}}
* If someone use another log framework than log4j, they are on their own. If that framework
supports var substitution they can insert a $\{solr.log.dir\} in the config
* Windows part only tested on Windows 10, could it break with other windows versions?

>          Components: logging
>    Affects Versions: 5.5.2, 6.0.1
>         Environment: 64-bit CentOS 7 with latest patches, JVM
>            Reporter: Tim Parker
>            Assignee: Jan Høydahl
>             Fix For: 6.3, master (7.0)
>         Attachments: SOLR-9325.patch, SOLR-9325.patch, SOLR-9325.patch
> (6.1 is probably also affected, but we've been blocked by SOLR-9231)
> solr.log should be written to the directory specified by the SOLR_LOGS_DIR environment
variable, but instead it's written to {solrRoot}/server/logs.
> This results in requiring that solr is installed on a writable device, which leads to
two problems:
> 1) solr installation can't live on a shared device (single copy shared by two or more
> 2) solr installation is more difficult to lock down
> Solr should be able to run without error in this test scenario:
> burn the Solr directory tree onto a CD-ROM
> Mount this CD as /solr
> run Solr from there (with appropriate environment variables set, of course)
