How can I instruct Tomcat to hold log files for each virtual host and app separately, similar to:


This is under the assumption that I configure all virtual hosts to log to the console, and they are unaware of the virtual host and application name they're running under.


take a look at this as a starting point: http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-5.5-doc/config/host.html

It seems you have to change to log4j and configure it there.

If you only want different access logs it is really straight forward: http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-5.5-doc/config/valve.html

I have not tried it with virtual hosts by myself, I use different instances.
