Subject [jira] [Commented] (LOG4NET-378) Rolling log file is overwritten when application is restarted
Date Thu, 20 Jun 2013 11:12:21 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4NET-378?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13689150#comment-13689150
] 

Dominik Psenner commented on LOG4NET-378:
-----------------------------------------

As far as I know, you can't. Given how the RFA rolling is implemented right now it is impossible
to detect old rotated logfiles when they are spread across different directories and searching
the entire directory tree to achieve that feature wouldn't be any wiser.

The plan is to rewrite the rolling file appender: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4NET-367

> My server process uses log files which roll on date and file size (4MB). 
> When I restart the server and there are already more than 1 log files for the current
date, the 2nd segment gets overwritten and the 3rd, 4th, ... may get overwritten later, when
#2 is filled up again.
> I'm using version 1.2.11, which I can't select in the "Affects Version" combo box.
> e.g. 
> flotto.20130527.0.log = 4MB
> flotto.20130527.1.log = 0MB (just got overwritten when the server was restarted)
> flotto.20130527.2.log = 4MB (still contains original data but will be overwritten too
as soon as #1 fills up)
> flotto.20130527.3.log = 4MB (same as above)
> The configuration in MyServer.exe.config looks like this:

>     <appender name="LogFileAppender" type="log4net.Appender.RollingFileAppender">
>       <file value="flotto.log" />

>     </appender>
