Goal

Usually, the BPM engine log location is defined in the engine configuration. However, in case of a cluster installation you may need to set a different location for each node. For example, if multiple nodes (WLS managed servers) run on the same box, you may need to redirect the engine logs of each node to a different folder to avoid collision.

Note that if several nodes of the same logical engine (same engine id) are writting log entries to a same file, this will result in missing messages and corrupted log files.

This document explains how to override the default log location for different nodes to avoid corrupted Engine logs.
