Confluence log not older than 1 day

Hi Genius ,

We have Confluence PROD Instance, we need to look at Confluence log files to improve Confluence Performance.

When i go through Confluence Directory, I could only find that Confluence log shows only logs generated till today. I would be looking at logs prior to that 2 weeks older but i am unable to find it. Can anyone let me know where can i find it or if it's being purged?

It will be being purged by something.  You can configure the Tomcat that Confluence runs in to do it with a bit of fiddling, but it's usually done best by the operating system - logrotate is the most widely used tool on Unix machines.

You can configure that in confluence/WEB-INF/classes/

These are the interesting lines:


If you are writing 100 MB log file a day, you have enough for one day.

If that's not satisfying, try
