Setting log file location

By default, the log files for an Edge component are written to the /opt/apigee/var/log/component_name directory, where component_name can be one of the following:

  • apigee-cassandra (Cassandra)
  • apigee-openldap (OpenLDAP)
  • apigee-postgresql (PostgreSQL database)
  • apigee-qpidd (Qpidd)
  • apigee-sso (Edge SSO)
  • apigee-zookeeper (ZooKeeper)
  • edge-management-server (Management Server)
  • edge-management-ui (new Edge UI)
  • edge-message-processor (Message Processor)
  • edge-postgres-server (Postgres Server)
  • edge-qpid-server (Qpid Server)
  • edge-router (Edge Router)
  • edge-ui (Classic UI)

In addition to this list, Edge also logs the setup process in the /opt/apigee/var/log/apigee-setup directory.

Use the following procedure to change the default log file location for all Edge components except the Edge UI:

  1. Create the following file:
  2. Add the following property to the file:

    Where /directory/path specifies the directory for the log files.

  3. Make sure the directory is accessible by the "apigee" user:
    chown apigee:apigee /directory/path
  4. Restart the component:
    /opt/apigee/apigee-service/bin/apigee-service component_name restart
