Subject log4j 1.2.15 Rolling file appender building files.. not rolling them
Date Thu, 24 Apr 2008 11:59:46 GMT


Using log4j version 1.2.15.


RollingFileAppender used in the configuration works fine with the app
deployed on the local machine, with MaxFileSize and MaxBackUp index
behaving as expected. However on a server where the application is
deployed, the log files build up to much higher sizes - 5MB, 3MB etc and
the BackUp files are randomly deleted. I see only infra.log and
infra.log.2 etc.


Any lead on this will be truly appreciated. 


A section of my log4j.xml:
