How I can configure the path where the stdout logs are written by the WebLogic server?

I've read about -Dweblogic.log.RedirectStdoutToServerLogEnabled=true, but this redirects only part of the output. For example if I will run a thread dump, the output will remain in the original log file.

I think it should be an option in nodemanager/startup.properties file.

WebLogic version is and I am using a java based node manager. OS is RHEL 5.

Thank you,

Most of the logs can be redirected to standard WebLogic logging with -Dweblogic.log.RedirectStdoutToServerLogEnabled=true See: http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E15051_01/wls/docs103/logging/config_logs.html#wp1022848 and http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E15051_01/wls/docs103/ConsoleHelp/taskhelp/logging/RedirectJVMOutput.html this can also be configured from the WL Admin Console by ticking the Environment/Servers/<server_name>/Logging/Advanced/Redirect stdout logging enabled checkbox.

Other application logs can be managed by WebLogic logging system or by log4j.

The native java output (like thread dumps) goes to the log configured at the domain creation and set by the NodeManager at the startup time of the ManagedServer. The location is $DOMAIN_HOME/servers/<server_name>/logs/<server_name>.out See: http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E14571_01/web.1111/e13740/overview.htm#i1079068
This log is not rotated by WebLogic and should be rotated by something like logrotate.
