Completely disable atlassian-confluence.log

There're some bugs and some other events in confluence which throws a lot in log file.

I'd like to have a possibility to temporary disable writing in log.

Is it possible?

I thought that I could change permission for that file so confluence even can't write to it. But maybe somebody knows real solution.

The application will fall over if it can't write to the log.  You could turn the logging levels down, but if you've got a log full of errors, you should be fixing them.

Thanks for pointing that app won't work once it couldn't write to log.

All errors are submitted to specific support, so I don't need to see repeated errors in log.

As I said, you could try turning down the logging levels, but a log file is there to record errors, so it's doing what it should be doing.  Ignoring them is not the right thing to do, you should fix them, so the errors don't need to be logged.
