Reduce log verboseness/size


How can i reduce Fisheye's log verboseness? It fills in my HD every 2 weeks. Sample files:

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2,9G Ago 20 14:29 fisheye-debug-2012-08-20.log

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 5,9G Ago 20 14:28 fisheye.out

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 3,0G Ago 20 14:27 fisheye-error-2012-08-20.log

Not sure if i turned on something in the past, but those logs use lots of space.

Hi Fernandomm,

I'm not sure if it's recommended to change loglevel but it's possible to change FishEye logs destination folder by editing log4j file located at FishEye home folder. Here an article where you can find more information about how to do that:

One question: Have you tried to contact Atlassian Support to investigate your logs? Sometimes some error or misbehavior is causing the increase of the stack trace quantity. Remember you can contact Atlassian Support at

It's worth looking at the contents of the error log to see why it is getting so full -- you may have an intermittent connectivity problem to one of your repositories, or a repository pointing at a source which is no longer there.
