Java App agent 4.5.x not starting on tomcat 8.5

Hi,

 

I am deploying/testing java app agent 4.5.x for the first time & finding it difficult to instrument a local tomcat 8.5 instance.

 

I got below error, when I noticed agent 4.5 uses log4j2 for logging

ERROR StatusLogger No log4j2 configuration file found. Using default configuration: logging only errors to theconsole. 

 

I used java argument to point to the log4j2 configuration for correct logging.

-Dlog4j.configurationFile="<agent_install_path>\ver4.5.7.25056\conf\logging\log4j2.xml"

 

But I received another set of errors & the agent never starts. Can anyone suggest why I see these errors & next actions to fix this?

Re: Java App agent 4.5.x not starting on tomcat 8.5

Sailesh,

 

Can you post your entire command line please, many things look off in the output you pasted.

 

Did the agent start and work OK despite the original ERROR message?

 

Warm regards,

Peter

Hi Peter,

 

Here is the complete argument list -

-Dcatalina.base="C:\Users\jainsai\Downloads\apache-tomcat-8.5.38" -Dcatalina.home="C:\Users\jainsai\Downloads\apache-tomcat-8.5.38" -Dwtp.deploy="C:\Users\jainsai\Downloads\apache-tomcat-8.5.38\wtpwebapps" -Djava.endorsed.dirs="C:\Users\jainsai\Downloads\apache-tomcat-8.5.38\endorsed" -Dlog4j.configurationFile="C:\Users\jainsai\Downloads\Appdynamics 4.5\agent_bundles\dbapm-oracle-java-app-agent-v4.0\ver4.5.7.25056\conf\logging\log4j2.xml" -javaagent:"C:\Users\jainsai\Downloads\Appdynamics 4.5\agent_bundles\dbapm-oracle-java-app-agent-v4.0\javaagent.jar" -Dappdynamics.http.proxyHost="userproxy.intranet.db.com" -Dappdynamics.http.proxyPort="8080"

 

Agent didn't start at all. Also tomcat server failed to start.

Re: Java App agent 4.5.x not starting on tomcat 8.5

Does the app server start fine without the extra -D option for log4j.configurationFile? (other than the error message, which can be ignored)

Peter

Re: Java App agent 4.5.x not starting on tomcat 8.5

No, the app server doesn't start without or with the extra -D option for log4j.configurationFile.

 

Withour the the extra -D option for log4j.configurationFile, it throws below error -

ERROR StatusLogger No log4j2 configuration file found. Using default configuration: logging only errors to theconsole. 

 

Seems it is a known bug. Have a look at this support ticket I raised - http://help.appdynamics.com/hc/requests/173393

Good, I'm glad this is root-caused.

What is the root cause?  

 

https://help.appdynamics.com/hc/en-us/requests/173393 goes to a 404 page

Re: Java App agent 4.5.x not starting on tomcat 8.5

Kindly let us know what is the root cause. I am getting permission denied for the URL. I am also facing the same issue.

Re: Java App agent 4.5.x not starting on tomcat 8.5

There were issues with how a few of the early 4.5.x agents used log4j

 

This issue is fixed in any recent 4.5.x agent (the most recent is 4.5.11)

 

If you experience the same issue with v4.5.11 of the agent, please create a new post with details, or open a support ticket.

 

Warm regards,

Peter

Re: Java App agent 4.5.x not starting on tomcat 8.5

Thanks for the reply Peter.

 

If I am not wrong, any of the 4.5.x uses version 2 of log4j (i.e. log4j2) for logging.

 

Is there any way I can change this behaviour & make the agents to use log4j logging?

 

Regards,

Sailesh
