Subject Re: Different Processes, same Logfile
Date Sat, 25 Jun 2016 07:01:53 GMT
In order for multiple processes to share a log file os file locking has to be used, which impacts
performance considerably. Furthermore, only a regular FileAppender can be used. You really
can’t share a rolling file safely as both processes may try to roll the file at the same
time. Furthermore, if one of the processes fails to specify file locking should be used then
the file will likely get corrupted on some systems.
