public interface: LoggingMXBean [javadoc | source]

All Known Implementing Classes:
    Logging

The management interface for the logging facility. It is recommended to use the java.lang.management.PlatformLoggingMXBean management interface that implements all attributes defined in this {@code LoggingMXBean}. The ManagementFactory.getPlatformMXBean method can be used to obtain the {@code PlatformLoggingMXBean} object representing the management interface for logging.

There is a single global instance of the LoggingMXBean. This instance is an MXBean that can be obtained by calling the LogManager#getLoggingMXBean method or from the {@linkplain java.lang.management.ManagementFactory#getPlatformMBeanServer platform MBeanServer}.

The ObjectName that uniquely identifies the management interface for logging within the {@code MBeanServer} is:

    java.util.logging:type=Logging 

The instance registered in the platform {@code MBeanServer} is also a java.lang.management.PlatformLoggingMXBean .

Method from java.util.logging.LoggingMXBean Summary:
getLoggerLevel,   getLoggerNames,   getParentLoggerName,   setLoggerLevel
Method from java.util.logging.LoggingMXBean Detail:
 public String getLoggerLevel(String loggerName)
    Gets the name of the log level associated with the specified logger. If the specified logger does not exist, null is returned. This method first finds the logger of the given name and then returns the name of the log level by calling:
    Logger.getLevel() .getName() ;

    If the Level of the specified logger is null, which means that this logger's effective level is inherited from its parent, an empty string will be returned.

 public List<String> getLoggerNames()
    Returns the list of currently registered logger names. This method calls LogManager#getLoggerNames and returns a list of the logger names.
 public String getParentLoggerName(String loggerName)
    Returns the name of the parent for the specified logger. If the specified logger does not exist, null is returned. If the specified logger is the root Logger in the namespace, the result will be an empty string.
 public  void setLoggerLevel(String loggerName,
    String levelName)
    Sets the specified logger to the specified new level. If the levelName is not null, the level of the specified logger is set to the parsed Level matching the levelName. If the levelName is null, the level of the specified logger is set to null and the effective level of the logger is inherited from its nearest ancestor with a specific (non-null) level value.
