(Doc ID 1385435.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 05, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Weblogic Server - Version: 9.2 to 10.3.1
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On : WLS 10.3.0 version, WLS JVM, in a Solaris system using the Sun JDK 1.6.0_05


When using the property -Dweblogic.Stdout, the JVM standard output are redirected to a file defined as a value of this property.
When this file reaches a size of 2GB, the JVM output are not written in the file and this causes loss of logging data.


Loss of logging data should not happened when the output file has reached a size of 2GB.


1. Create a webapp which quickly files data in the output file
2. Set -Dweblogic.Stdout to this output file
3. Deploy the webapp to WLS and to run it
