Tridion 2011 centralizes all logging configuration in the logback.xml file. How do I configure the verbose logging of link resolving in Tridion 2011?

I do not think this is it, since it uses the DeployerLog. Am I missing something?

   <logger name="com.tridion.tcdl">
        <appender-ref ref="rollingDeployerLog"/>

I think the linking info will - by default - appear in the cd_core.log, since this seems to be a "catch-all" log for all com.tridion.* classes.

You can add a log explicitly for linking as follows:

Create a linking-only appender:

<appender name="linkingLog" class="ch.qos.logback.core.rolling.RollingFileAppender">
    <rollingPolicy class="ch.qos.logback.core.rolling.TimeBasedRollingPolicy">

Then bind the linking classes to this appender:

<logger name="com.tridion.linking" level="${log.level}">
    <appender-ref ref="linkingLog"/>

if you want to use a different log level for this specific log file, then change it in the logger element.

Thanks Nuno. This is exactly what I was looking for and missing in the default logback file. Will be nice if this is included in the future logging samples. – robrtc Nov 30 '12 at 19:18
