Jifty::Manual::Logging - Using and controlling Jifty's logging system


Jifty uses the Log4perl module for logging messages, so you can define your own log4perl config for logging.

You can define different behaviour for different log levels. For example, you can send mail to administrator when error occurred, or add color to warning messages that are logged to the terminal.

Config from config.yml

Various log level config can be set from etc/config.yml or etc/site_config.yml.
