Subject [jira] [Commented] (LOG4J2-1074) Add a logformat token for nanotime
Date Sun, 12 Jul 2015 06:21:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-1074?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14623679#comment-14623679

Remko Popma commented on LOG4J2-1074:

While working on this issue, an interesting practical consideration came up: the impact of
the new field on the constructors. {{Log4jLogEvent}} already has 5 public constructors and
a factory method. To ensure backwards compatibility I could duplicate all these constructors
with an additional {{nanoTime}} parameter but that feels silly. On the other hand, modifying
the existing constructors to simply add a nanoTime parameter requires many JUnit tests to
be modified.

I am taking this opportunity to improve the existing {{Log4jLogEvent.Builder}} and use this
to create log events as much as possible. Especially JUnit tests will be much less impacted
by future changes to Log4jLogEvent.

I will reduce the internal dependence on the constructors and factory method and deprecate
the ones that end up without references. I may still need to add one or two public constructors
but will try to keep it to a minimum.

> Add a token in the log format specifier to output the current value of {{System.nanotime()}}.
> We are currently adding the nanotime value to our log messages manually, which we find
very useful for troubleshooting unexpected latency, and as a quick-and-dirty data source to
feed into performance analysis tools.
> It would be very nice if Log4j could do this for us. It would also be nice to have this
in the log format specified, so we can turn it on/off at runtime by editing the Log4j config
