Subject Forcing a log rollover
Date Mon, 12 Jul 2010 23:46:14 GMT
I'm using log4net and configure my application log via an xml configuration file.  The configuration
file sets my appender to be of type "log4net.Appender.RollingFileAppender" with the following

-          'lockingModel' as minimal

-          'appendToFile' as true

-          'rollingStyle' as size

-          'maximumFIleSize' as 100KB

-          'maxSizeRollBackups as 1

I have a situation in my application where I would like to force a backup of the log file
to be made when requested, as opposed to just when the maximumFileSize is reached.

Is it possible to do this programmatically?  I could not find an API that looked like it would
allow a backup to be made on demand.
I'm using log4net-1.2.10, including the dll under the net 2.0 directory.  My application is
written in .net 3.5 and will run on a Windows XP system.

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
