Repository Management with Nexus
6.13. Nexus Logging Configuration
You can configure the level of logging from within the Nexus interface. To do this, click on Log Configuration under the Administration menu in the left-hand navigation menu. Clicking on this link will display the panel shown in Figure 6.42, “The Log Configuration Panel”.
From this panel you can configure the Root Logger Level. It controls how verbose the Nexus logging will be. If set to DEBUG, Nexus will be very verbose printing all log messages include debugging statements. If set to ERROR, Nexus will be far less verbose only printing out a log statement if Nexus encounters an error. INFO represents an intermediate amount of logging.
Advanced logging configurations can be done by editing the logback-nexus.xml file found in sonatype-work/nexus/conf. Other logback* file found in the same directory do not need to be edited for most logging modifications.
