Whenever somebody logs into my server, I see all of these lines that I have no use for. I know what they are for, but I don't need them clogging up console space. Is there any way I can remove this?

  • It looks like log4j, maybe you can set the logging level to Error?

  • What OS? *nixes have some native tools and filesystem features (screen, grep, and named pipes) that could be used together to filter the output. Feb 22, 2013 at 0:54
  • Are you not launching the graphical server window too? Its output is much less cluttered because it doesn't line-wrap those long lists of mods. Feb 22, 2013 at 0:56

Instead of hiding information in the console, you could use the graphical one provided to you (minecraft_server.jar), which, as @SevenSidedDie said, removes all the clutter because it doesn't wrap lines. However, if like me, you use perimeters in a .bat file to launch it, you would want to use a file called invisible.vbs to hide the black console. It doesn't hide the graphical one because the graphical one is launched from the console.

  • I'm still interested to know if there's a solution to the original question. Hosted servers can surface their logs through web clients, which automatically wrap these lines. If I just want to take a quick glance at the log, I'm assaulted with the blocks of installed mods.
