How to stop Logging on Apache Tomcat6 or Tomcat7 solr server to catalina out

So, according to documentation all logging functionality can be manipulated in logging.properties file which is usually located under apache tomcat root installation folder, which in ubuntu case is under /etc/tomcat6/…

Opening a file you’d probably spot logging level settings (set to FINE as default), well We want to get rid of logging at all, so, according to this helping post I needed to change ConsoleHandler level to OFF.

I changed;

java.util.logging.ConsoleHandler.level = FINE

to

java.util.logging.ConsoleHandler.level = OFF

And happily I got the result Apache Tomcat6 solr server stopped logging to catalina.out
