Hi,

Currently, JBoss log4j configuration comes with two existing log rolling appender sections:

 
RollingFileAppender – Rotate server.log files based on specified file size criteria DailyRollingFileAppender – Rotate server.log file based on specified time/date (daily by default)
 
However, I am looking for configuration which can rotate the log files based on file size and append the date/time stamp to the backup file created.
I have the following configuration in log4j XML file - log files are successfully getting rolled over based on size and maximum index criteria, but the backup files are not time/date stamped, instead they are created as ‘sever.log.1, server.log.2  etc…’.
 
<!-- A size based file rolling appender -->
   <appender name="FILE" class="org.jboss.logging.appender.RollingFileAppender">
     <errorHandler class="org.jboss.logging.util.OnlyOnceErrorHandler"/>
     <param name="File" value="${jboss.server.log.dir}/server.log"/>
     <param name="Append" value="true"/>
     <param name="MaxFileSize" value="3000KB"/>
     <param name="MaxBackupIndex" value="3"/>
 
     <layout class="org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout">
       <param name="ConversionPattern" value="%d %-5p [%c] %m%n"/>
     </layout>           

   </appender>

Open in new window


I am looking for appender configuration that will roll log files based on file size, but also append the time/date stamp to it.

Appreciate your inputs.

Hi,

I have verified the configuration and it seems with date appender the backup files are created as 'serverlog.1' etc...
