How to turn off logging to console

My log4j.properties file look like this:

log4j.rootLogger=INFO, R1,R2,R3,R4,R5

# ***** R is set to be a RollingFileAppender.
log4j.appender.R1=org.apache.log4j.RollingFileAppender
log4j.appender.R1.File=/../debug.log
log4j.appender.R1.threshold=DEBUG
# ***** Max file size is set to 1000KB
log4j.appender.R1.MaxFileSize=1000KB
# ***** Keep one backup file
log4j.appender.R1.MaxBackupIndex=1
# ***** R uses PatternLayout.
log4j.appender.R1.layout=..
log4j.appender.R1.layout.ConversionPattern=..

same to info, warn, fatal and so on.

I never specified Console Appender, But still it is writing to the console, How to turn off the console logging?

Since Spring uses commons-logging.jar i put commons-logging.properties and simplelog.properties with the properties said in http://www.oracle.com/technology/products/jdev/tips/mills/Struts-logging.html . Spring is logging only for error messages after that. i got it thanks for your time.
