    Default How to avoid logging of root job in Logging window in Spoon

    Is there a way to avoid writing any log to Logging window in Spoon when I run my root job? I'd like to have those messages go to a file instead.
    In Job->Settings menu, Log tab, there is Log connection and log table. There is no mention of logfile.
    I also tried to choose "Nothing at all" for log level when I execute a job, but it still writes to Logging window in Spoon.
    Many thanks!

    you could try to run the same job/transformation using kitchen/pan and log the output to a file.

    not sure this helps or not..

    You can use your own log4j.xml file to configure the logging.
    Simply place one next to the Spoon application.

    Even simpler put the output in a dummy file or /dev/null on Unix systems.

    Spoon.bat > output.txt (Windows)
    sh ./ > /dev/null (*nix)
