In this tutorial I am going to explain how to change the log level details in your WebSphere Application Server (WAS). If you are deploying your application to production server, it is always good practice to keep the log level as FATAL or ERROR. We can configure the log levels in Application Server (which will affect all the applications deployed to that server) or using the application log file configurations like Log4J.
Here the below steps helps you to quickly change the log level details of your Websphere Application Server.
Step 1 : Login to admin console
Step 2 : Navigate to Server details page and click on the specific server name
Step 3 : Click on the change log detail levels
Step 4 : Update the log level in the change log detail levels section
This configuration would effect on all the applications deployed on the same server. However, the best practice would be to configure the log levels in the application log configuration files.
