What is the difference between the stats, access and error logs?

Hi guys,

I’m really a novice at java and linux so apologies if this is not really a wowza related issue.

I have been playing around with and I think I have a rough idea of what is going on. Throughout my code I have used the following:

getLogger().info("some useful info");

I don’t understand why sometimes the message appears in the different log files (stats, access and error).

Also, am I right in thinking that I need to restart the server in order for changes to to take effect?

The difference between the Access and Stats appender is the Fields list.

The Error appender also has a Threshold=WARN, and different Fields list.

You can modify the Fields list of any appender.

Yes, Wowza has to be restarted for changes in /conf/ to take effect.
