There are too many alert events related entries in the APM logs (IntroscopeEnterpriseManager.log) and it makes it difficult to analyze. It would help having the alert events in a separated log file.


Release : Any

Component : APM 


In order to redirect the events entries in logs to a different log file the following can be used:

- Define a new appender in (in this example it is called MyAPMEvents) by setting the new log file path:

- Configure the new appender:
   log4j.appender.MyAPMEvents.layout.ConversionPattern=%d{M/dd/yy hh:mm:ss.SSS a z} [%-3p] [%t] [%c] %m%n

- Redirect events messages to new appender:,MyAPMEvents

Additional Information

There is no need to restart EM to have the new appender working.
