      Description

      Question is about the INFO/ERROR statements logged by the embedded flume agent during startup.
      When running from eclipse I am able to see these logs in the console. However, when deployed in Tomcat, the log doesn't appear in application or catalina.out logs. I tried adding the below configuration in my log4j2.xml but that didn't work either
      <Logger name="org.apache.flume" level="INFO">
      <AppenderRef ref="applicationFile" />
      </Logger>

      Just to make it clear, I am talking about the below logs (i.e.the embedded agent startup logs)
