Subject [jira] [Commented] (LOG4J2-524) Feature request: auto-delete older rolled over files
Date Tue, 05 May 2015 16:25:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-524?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14528749#comment-14528749

Gary Gregory commented on LOG4J2-524:

I see two issues ATM:
# The patch does not apply cleanly to git master. 
# The patch does not contain unit tests.

Anyone interested in the feature is welcome to improve on these two issues.

> I am trying to use the rolling file appender in log4j2, basically I want to roll at midnight
daily and keep 3 old log files. New files are created properly, but log4j doesn't seem to
be cleaning up the old files. Does log4j only support cleanup of files within the time period?
Here is the relevant portion of the config. I tried things with and without the %i pattern.
> {code}
>     <RollingFile name="Event" fileName="app.log"
>                  filePattern="app-%d{yyyy-MM-dd}.%i.log">
>       <PatternLayout>
>         <Pattern>%m%n</Pattern>
>       </PatternLayout>
>       <Policies>
>         <TimeBasedTriggeringPolicy interval="1" modulate="true"/>
>       </Policies>
>       <DefaultRolloverStrategy compressionLevel="0" max="3"/>
>     </RollingFile>
> {code}
