How to Increase Console Output Limit in Eclipse

Often when we are trying to debug a critical issue using eclipse debugger, we need to look at console output. But if you have set the logging level to “debug” then application dumps a lot of log statements into console. Many times, the log statements are just lost in this dump of log statements.

You can handle this problem simply by increasing the limit of log statements in console OR simply remove the limit all together. This can be done setting following setting in eclipse:

1) Go to Window > Preferences > Run/Debug > Console
2) Increase the Console buffer size
2) OR simply uncheck “Limit Console Output” all together
