How to enable logging of Ehcache

In my Spring + Hibernate project, I was doing logging by SLF4J 1.6.4 with LogBack. Now, I've added Ehcache 2.2.0 (through ehcache-spring-annotations-1.1.3). The caching seems to be working as the method, annotated with @Cacheable, no longer being executed, though returning the correct result. But, I'm interested to see the log written by the Ehcache. As Ehcache also uses SLF4J, I supposed, the log should be written into my log file. But, this is not happening. The logback.xml has the following.

 <root level="info">
    <appender-ref ref="STDOUT"/>
    <appender-ref ref="ROLLING"/>
</root>

Adding following also doesn't help

 <logger name="net.sf.ehcache"> 
</logger> 

Ehcache.xml

    <cache name="sampleCache1"
       eternal="false"
       overflowToDisk="true"
       timeToIdleSeconds="300"
       timeToLiveSeconds="600"           
       memoryStoreEvictionPolicy="LFU"           
        />

Please advise me to overcome the problem.

The Ehcache is using SLF4J 1.6.1, while my project was using SLF4J 1.6.4. Can it cause any problem?

Thanks

EhCache logs a lot on DEBUG level. First of all, this configuration snippet filters out all logging statements below INFO:

<root level="info">

Change it to

<root level="ALL">

Secondly

<logger name="net.sf.ehcache">

needs an increased logging level

<logger name="net.sf.ehcache" level="ALL"/> 

You should then see plenty of logging statements from EhCache (and others).


In my opinion setting the root logger level to ALL is not a good idea.

This means that ALL log messages of every level will get through (unless you set a threshold on your appenders).

Instead, I suggest you set a sensible root logger level, such as INFO or WARN, and then set the log level of individual loggers if you require more specific information.

This way you are not creating a forest of unnecessary information.

I suggest something like the below:

<appender name="CONSOLE" class="org.apache.log4j.ConsoleAppender"> 
  <param name="Target" value="System.out"/> 
  <layout class="org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout"> 
    <param name="ConversionPattern" value="%d %-5p [%c] %m%n"/>
  </layout>  
</appender> 

<logger name="net.sf.ehcache">
  <level value="DEBUG"/>
</logger>

<root> 
  <priority value ="INFO" /> 
  <appender-ref ref="CONSOLE" /> 
</root>


I also found it handy to enable DEBUG logging on org.springframework.cache because I'm using Spring Framework 4.2.1's caching feature (@Cacheable etc.).

Why does git say "Pull is not possible because you have unmerged files"?

git git-pull merge-conflict-resolution git-fetch

When I try to pull in my project directory in the terminal, I see the following error:

Copy all the lines to clipboard

vim editor vi

Is there any way to copy all lines from open file to clipboard in VI editor. I tried yG but it's not using clipboard to store those lines.
