Enabling access logs in tomcat for deeper diagnosis of authentication requests
Sometimes the data in the access logs of Apache is not sufficient to diagnose authentication requests or deeper level of diagnosis of requests to the applications hosted with tomcat.
Tomcat has an access log facility similar to Apache. It is disabled by default.'
It can be enabled by changing configuration in server.xml for each tomcat instance.
It can be useful to debug the requests being served by tomcat. It also has the username in the log line for each authenticated requeust which is not available in apache logs.
