Hi Experts

Is there a logging tool such a log4j which does logging asynchronously? Or is there a wrapper to achieve this and how?

What makes you think it's not asynchronous? I would think that log4j (though theoretically superseded by 'logback') already optimises performance with the use of threading. The initial call might be on the same thread but probably doesn't remain so in the implementation. Anything else would be
a. unnecessary as the performance gain would be vanishingly small
b. make the framework difficult to use

lo4j2 has both AsyncAppender and AsyncLogger classes - which use a separate thread to do the logging.

log4j (the earlier version) did not support those as far as I know.

Details are here:
