This topic describes Alibaba Cloud Logback Appenders.

Logback is an open source project that is developed by the founder of Log4j. You can use Logback to specify the output destination and format of logs. You can also specify the severity level of each log entry to implement a fine-grained control on log generation.

You can set the destination of logs to Log Service by using an Alibaba Cloud Logback Appender. The following example shows the format of a log entry that is uploaded to Log Service. For more information about Alibaba Cloud Logback Appenders, visit Logback Appender.
