Problems with LOG

It's probably a begginers question...but, in a controller I have:

    logger = Logger.new(STDOUT)
    logger.info "Testing logger at controller"

When running my app in my machine, I can see this log in
log/development.log file.

When running in production, this log is not printed. Not even with
"puts" ...

Info is the default level for Logger when running in
production...so...Why can't I see my logs in production environmnent ?
Any help ?

It's probably a begginers question...but, in a controller I have:

logger = Logger\.new\(STDOUT\)
logger\.info "Testing logger at controller"

When running my app in my machine, I can see this log in
log/development.log file.

When running in production, this log is not printed. Not even with
"puts" ...

I don't think STDOUT is connected to anything in particular in
production (since typically the process will have detached from the
terminal that launched it)
If you just want to write to the standard log file why do you need to
create your own logger?

What's the best way to initialize logger and where to do it ?

well..

To log a message from either a controller or a model, access the Rails
logger instance with the logger method:

class HomeController < ActionController::Base
  def index
    logger.info 'informational message'
  end
end

From outside a controller or model, you can pass the logger instance or
access it with the constant RAILS_DEFAULT_LOGGER. Since Rails 2.1, you
can also access it with the shortcut Rails.logger.

In an initializer file, Rails.logger is the best way to log ?

thanks
