How to view Oracle Weblogic logs from the Console

This quick recipe shows how you can view Oracle Weblogic logs from the Administration Console.

Usually, system or resource loggings are monitored with an operating system tool/shell (like the Unix’s tail -f command). However, the Oracle WLS Administration Console provides a Log Viewer for all log files traced by a domain. To reach the Log Viewer, perform the following steps:

1.       Expand from the left panel the option Diagnostic and, from there, click on the Log Files option.

2.       Select the Service you are interested to view as shown by the following picture:

The Log Viewer can find and display the messages based on a large set of attributes (including date, subsystem, severity, machine, server, thread, user ID, transaction ID etc ). It can also display messages as they are logged or search for past log messages. Here’s a snapshot of the Admin Server’s logs:
