You now have a basic understanding of how to install beet, control its behavior, and work with the default logging formats.  Some activities not covered in this tutorial that you can pursue with the User Guide:

  • persist events directly to a relational database instead of log files
  • efficiently bulk load log file data to an Oracle database
  • filter http-request logging by URI
  • change log rotation and flush schedules
  • control thread pool and schedule implementations used by beet
  • integrate event logging with your custom authentication methods

The following reference materials are also likely to be useful to you:

  • The Spring User Guide for more information about configuring Spring beans, Spring JMX and AOP support, and authoring your own Spring configuration tags (like <bt:manager>)
  • The Tomcat Manual for insight into administering a production Tomcat server, though often Google helps about as much
  • Sun's jconsole documentation
Good luck.
