If you want to stop logging of some files just change logging level to "OFF" or delete entries from "Handler specific properties" section. I recommend to turn it off, so you can enable it later if you want. But if you are completely sure that you will never use than better to rid of it Smile

Every entry contains three files. To change logging level you have to choose one of logging levels:

  • SEVERE (highest value)
  • INFO
  • FINE
  • FINEST (lowest value)

    1catalina.org.apache.juli.FileHandler.level = OFF

    Also you can log all the messages with the level ALL
