Subject [jira] [Commented] (LOG4J2-467) Thread name caching in async logger incompatible with use of Thread.setName()

Remko Popma commented on LOG4J2-467:
------------------------------------

Anthony, understood, thanks!
I've given it some thought and the per-logger config would be a lot more complex than a global
config, so I'll start with the simple solution and will consider a per-logger solution if
a strong use case comes up.

> AsyncLogger caches a thread's name in a thread-local info variable.  I make use of a
thread pool where the submitted Runnables call Thread.setName() at the beginning of their
task and the thread name is included in the log message.  For an example of this behavior,
see org.jboss.netty.util.ThreadRenamingRunnable in Netty 3.x.  With the cached thread name,
the log messages will contain whatever name the thread had when it logged for the first time
and so long as the thread doesn't terminate (such as in a core pool thread), all log messages
involving this thread will be erroneous.  If Thread.getName has a significant performance
impact for async logging, I would be satisfied if this behavior were configurable, perhaps
on a per-logger basis, so that the penalty only needs to be taken by users who make use of
Thread.setName()
