That catalina.out file is 22 gigs all on its own.

So if it is creating separate catalina.{datestamp}.log files why is it still outputting to catalina.out?

You can adapt the logging configuration in conf/logging.properties, this is happending because next to the rolling appender the standard out is enabled too.

Simply remove the 'ConsoleHandler' from the handler properties to get rid of this file.

Is this a good answer, though? Is the standard out not helpful? Or is it something that should be enabled only at certain times?
