Which log4j config file is FishEye using?

I see there is a log4j.xml and a log4j-client.xml. Which one is used by FishEye? Where are there 2 files? When would it use one vs the other? When I start FishEye via start.sh it says it is using log4j.xml but when I stop FishEye using stop.sh it reports it is using log4j-client.xml.

The FishEye app uses the log4j.xml config file - this is the one you want to modify to tweak logging.

The log4j-client.xml file is used by the various helper commands ran through fisheyectl.sh (including the stop command, which actually is a separate program that connects to a running FishEye app). In generaly you don't need to modify this one.
