Liferay Log Viewer

This plugin provides a portlet that attaches to the Liferay Portal's log4j mechanism to provide a log view within the browser.

The portlet is available under Server in the Control Panel in 6.1, and under the Apps section in the Control Panel in 6.2.

The portlet polls the log buffer periodically (configurable) to update the page with the latest logs. You can also attach or detach the logger from the portal log4j.

Two portal properties can be set:
  • permeance.log.viewer.autoattach to toggle whether the logger attaches automatically on startup, default "true".
  • permeance.log.viewer.pattern to configure the log4j pattern, default "%d{ABSOLUTE} %-5p [%c{1}:%L] %m%n"
