Subject [jira] [Updated] (LOG4J2-1119) Disable JMX by default
Date Thu, 10 Sep 2015 23:37:46 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-1119?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Remko Popma updated LOG4J2-1119:
--------------------------------
    Priority: Critical  (was: Blocker)

Changed priority to "Critical" since there is a workaround: users can disable JMX with the
property {{log4j2.disable.jmx}}.

I wish I had named that property {{log4j2.enable.jmx}} now, and considered renaming it (while
supporting the old name as well) but I concluded the confusion it would cause outweighs the
aestetics. So I'll keep the current name but change the default value.

> I recently learned that RMI will by default trigger a full GC every hour.
> See [Oracle RMI docs|http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/technotes/guides/rmi/sunrmiproperties.html]
{{sun.rmi.dgc.server.gcInterval}}.
> Since JMX uses RMI, and Log4j 2 by default enables JMX, we are unintentionally causing
all applications that use Log4j 2 to do a full GC every hour.
> This is clearly undesirable. 
> I propose we change to switch JMX off by default and update the documentation to reflect
this change and the reason behind it.
