I have logging in my cpp files, like the following, and I'm trying to get the messages to appear in a file.


I have these env vars to show where the logs should be placed, and how to config logging.

ROS_LOG_DIR = /tmp/node/etc/logs
ROSCONSOLE_CONFIG_FILE = /tmp/node/etc/rosconsole.config

And within the rosconsole.config file I have the following.


Any thoughts as to why I don't see my output in log files?

you should define it in the config file, like this

log4j.logger.ros.log_test=WARN,rosout_a log4j.appender.rosout_a=org.apache.log4j.RollingFileAppender log4j.appender.rosout_a.Threshold=WARN log4j.appender.rosout_a.Append=true log4j.appender.rosout_a.File=/home/name/output.txt
