tc Server ALL must initiate logging during service start-up.
An attacker can compromise a web server during the startup process. If logging is not initiated until all the web server processes are started, key information may be missed and not available during a forensic investigation. To assure all logable events are captured, the web server must begin logging once the first web server process is initiated.
During start, tc Server reports system messages onto STDOUT and STDERR. These messages will be logged if the initialization script is configured correctly. For historical reasons, the standard log file for this is called catalina.out.
