WebSphere Application Server v8 Primer, Part-7 : High performance extensible logging (HPEL)

High Performance Extensible Logging (HPEL) is a log and trace facility that is provided as a part of WebSphere Application Server. HPEL provides a convenient mechanism for storing and accessing log, trace, System.err, and System.out information produced by the application server or your applications. It is an alternative to the basic log and trace facility, which provided the JVM logs, diagnostic trace, and service log files commonly named SystemOut.log/SystemErr.log, trace.log, and activity.log.
