I suspect I wasn't clear in the other thread when I asked what directory convention you used.

I see you used ../log/server which creates a directory etc like all the others, but I was also considering including orion-application.xml's in the consideration. For instance the two original xml files I have presently go to ./ and ../../log as shown below.

Since I haven't changed them yet, I wondered if I would send ODL logging to the same place also, and of course then it creates a directory analogous to all the others...

Anyway, I'm presently on my oc4j directory... and I believe this might be related... Have SR on this, but sometimes they don't go in the direction you envision.


<file path="application.log" /> 

Goes to:
home/application-deployments/IsWebCacheWorking/home_default_island_1/app lication.log


<file path="../../log/em-application.log" /> 

Goes to: OC4J_EM/log/OC4J_EM_default_island_1/em-application.log

It is oracle diagnostic logging facility. m#i1027867

Here is my notes:

 Use oracle diagnostic logging to administer log sizes, number of log files; the following have been changed.

 Edit the following files


 Replace <file path="../log/server.log" />  with <odl path="../log/server/" max-file-size="5000" max-directory-size="20000" />

Then bounce all instances, using opmnctl stopall; opmnctl startall.
