Subject RE: SmtpAppender buffer flush (to mail) on shutdown.
Date Sat, 24 Sep 2005 15:15:10 GMT
I've experienced this even with lossy="true", so I don't believe this is
the issues.  Anybody have any insights into how I might stop this buffer
flush to mail?

 

Regards,

 

Adam

Subject: SmtpAppender buffer flush (to mail) on shutdown.

 

Howdy folks,

 

I hope this isn't an FAQ, but I couldn't find the answer in mailing list
archives or in the documentation. 

 

I have an SmtpAppender pretty much configured as in the example:

 

 
http://logging.apache.org/log4net/release/config-examples.html#smtpappen
der

 

It is running inside my webapp (configured in the web.config) and works
wonderfully, e-mailing me when I get a page crash/error event. 

 

The only bummer is sometimes it e-mails me when nothing is wrong, but
the webapp has timed out (and is being torn down.) The buffer of
non-error log message is sent to me. I've attached the config below, and
looking at it I see lossy set to false - which is a worry, I'll set it
true again - but I'm pretty certain I only tinkered with that setting
when this started happening. Of course, I was preparing this e-mail as I
found that setting. 

 

Time will tell if this fixes the problem, but I'd really appreciate
insights. Is this a designed in feature, or an unintentional side
effect? If intentional can I disable it with some (say) disable
statement when I capture the shutdown event?

 

Thanks for insights, and thanks for this product on this platform.

 

Regards

 

Adam
