Change JBoss Debug Levels

Another option for changing JBoss logging levels without editing jboss-log4j.xml is to update the logging level using the JMX console. Changes made using the JMX console will not be persisted after restarting JBoss.

  • Log into JMX Console. Typically http://your.ip.address:8080
  • Navigate: jboss.system->service=Logging,type=Log4jService
  • getLoggerLevel net.kyleryan.ClassName will tell you the current logging level
  • setLoggerLevel net.kyleryan.ClassName DEBUG will change the logging level to DEBUG
