Out Tomcat 8 is logging so much so that by the evening the catalina.out inflates to GBs of data. I followed the procedure given on the tomcat website to replace JULI logging with LOG4J. Now LOG4J has started logging in catalina but catalina.out is still being logged in as earlier. We are using Java 7 over Redhat 5. I have also commented everything out in the JRE logging properties file as well. Please advise.
You need to change in conf/logging.properties the property org.apache.catalina.level to log level you want to have.
