Update of commons logging libraries causes EventCounter to count logging events incorrectly

                 Key: HADOOP-7055
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7055
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: metrics
    Affects Versions: 0.21.0
            Reporter: Jingguo Yao

Hadoop 0.20.2 uses commons logging 1.0.4. EventCounter works correctly with this version of
commons logging. Hadoop 0.21.0 uses commons logging 1.1.1 which causes EventCounter to count
logging events incorrectly. I have verified it with Hadoop 0.21.0. After start-up of hadoop,
I checked jvmmetrics.log after several minutes. In every metrics record, "logError=0, logFatal=0,
logInfo=3, logWarn=0" was shown. The following text is an example.

jvm.metrics: hostName=jingguolin, processName=DataNode, sessionId=, gcCount=3, gcTimeMillis=31,
logError=0, logFatal=0, logInfo=3, logWarn=0, maxMemoryM=888.9375, memHeapCommittedM=38.0625,
memHeapUsedM=3.6539612, memNonHeapCommittedM=18.25, memNonHeapUsedM=11.335686, threadsBlocked=0,
threadsNew=0, threadsRunnable=8, threadsTerminated=0, threadsTimedWaiting=6, threadsWaiting=6

Then I stopped hadoop and replaced commons logging 1.1.1 with 1.0.4. After the re-start of
hadoop, a lot of logging events showed up in jvmmetrics.log.

I have checked the source code of Log4JLogger for both 1.0.4 (http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/commons/proper/logging/tags/LOGGING_1_0_4/src/java/org/apache/commons/logging/impl/Log4JLogger.java?view=markup)
and 1.1.1 (http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/commons/proper/logging/tags/commons-logging-1.1.1/src/java/org/apache/commons/logging/impl/Log4JLogger.java?view=markup).
For 1.0.4, Level instances such as Level.INFO are used to construct LoggingEvent. But for
1.1.1, Priority instances such as Priority.INFO are used to construct LoggingEvent. So 1.1.1
version's event.getLevel() always returns Priority instances. EventCounter append method's
"==" check always fails between a Level instance and a Priority instance. For "logInfo=3"
metrics records produced by commons logging 1.1.1., I think that these 3 logging events are
produced by log4j code directly instead of through commons logging API. The following code
is EventCounter's append method.

    public void append(LoggingEvent event) {
        Level level = event.getLevel();
        if (level == Level.INFO) {
        else if (level == Level.WARN) {
        else if (level == Level.ERROR) {
        else if (level == Level.FATAL) {
