I’ve noticed that the Druid daemon process output logs are well managed by log4j, but the request and indexer logs seem to use a direct file logger (maybe FileRequestLogger?). http://druid.io/docs/latest/configuration/indexing-service.html talks about task logging, and we have that set, but it doesn’t mention the ability to use ‘slf4j’ as the value for druid.indexer.logs.type. And I don’t see a mention of request log configuration int the docs at all.
I have a lot of old request and index log files that will eventually fill up disk space. I’m about to configure a cron job that just deletes them, but before I do: is there a way to make these files also managed by log4j?
