tried that with the attached file. but it just says: 56 - 2016/05/16 
15:53:09 -  - INFO - org.apache.log4j.chainsaw.messages.MessageCenter - 
getXMLFileAppenderConfiguration for file: 
C:\Users\ray\Documents\chainsawconfig.xml, result: {}

i tried using this file with my older version (2.1) and it started the 
socket, and i am seeing lots of messages! (thank you)

but the messages are not expanded, as they are in the chainsaw log tab 
(there are only 3 columns: application, hostname, and 

is there a way to make the messages show up with the usual column 
headings like the pic <https://logging.apache.org/chainsaw/> in the doc?

it says my buffer is full, is there a way to store these as files and 
roll them over at some point?

doc says: *Tabs/Docking* - Chainsaw routes separate applications/remote 
hosts' events to a unique Tab within the GUI. These tabs can be undocked 
from the main window. Using these features you can manage multiple 
application logs using the one GUI. can you point me to the doc on this?
