Error description

  • https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/informix-servers/14.10?topic=started
    -logging-in-informixhq
    states that if provides a brief tutorial about logging for HQ
    
    The InformixHQ server and agent use the log4j2 library for
    logging. By default, the InformixHQ server and agent will log
    messages at INFO level to an informixhq-server.log file and an
    informixhq-agent.log file respectively.
    
    You can customize the logging behavior by providing a
    server.log4j.xml file in the current directory or classpath when
    starting the InformixHQ server or a agent.log4j.xml file in the
    current directory or classpath when starting the InformixHQ
    agent. Use these log4j2 configuration files to change the
    logging level (ERROR, WARN, INFO, or DEBUG), change the log file
    location, or enable rolling window logging.
    
    
     It does not   explain the logger part of the XML file.  This
    should be done, as there is an exception for the H2 database and
    changing the h2database level to INFO will lead to massive
    logging of SQL queries  in the log of the hqserver.
