Requesting Log Level Trace

Jon Drews
created an issue

Please add Trace to your log levels. Currently I'm using '-t TRACE' to colorize my log4j log file trace messages.But they end up red background and white text. Red Background stuff generally screams something broke in the sysadmin world.

Thanks!

    Yeah, that can be done easily. In the meantime, if you have a config file let's say:

    backgroundemph=yellow, on_cyan

    whatever line matching TRACE would be emphasized in yellow with a background cyan.

    Execute log4tailer like:

    log4tail -c config.cfg -t TRACE yourlog.log

    You can put your config in your home directory as ~/.log4tailer and you won't need to pass the -c in command line.

    Great!

    Thanks for the tip. I didn't know the trick about ~/.log4tailer. That'll be very helpful. I was using aliases to always point to a config file that gets my debug messages into white (using black background terminals).
