Subject Re: RollingFileAppender does not seem to preserve old log messages
Date Sun, 10 Apr 2011 06:14:18 GMT
When I change your code to:

for (int i1 = 0; i1 <= 20; i1++)
{
    for (int i2 = 0; i2 < 1000; i2++)
    {
        log.Debug("" + i2 + " " + superLongText);
    }
}

the 3 files are created.

The small file size after 20 runs is probably caused because one of the files is 10mb and
the other file has been reset. I'm not sure why that occurs but it seems like the RFA maintains
some sort of internal roll over state that isn't preserved when the program starts up again.

Subject: RollingFileAppender does not seem to preserve old log messages

Here is the configuration xml I am using:
<log4net debug="true">
    <appender name="RollingLogFileAppender"
type="log4net.Appender.RollingFileAppender">
        <lockingModel type="log4net.Appender.FileAppender+ExclusiveLock" />
        <file value="./output/" />
        <appendToFile value="true" />
        <rollingStyle value="Composite" />
        <datePattern value="'LoggerTest'yyyyMMdd'.log'" />
        <maxSizeRollBackups value="-1" />
        <maximumFileSize value="10MB" />
        <staticLogFileName value="false" />
        <layout type="log4net.Layout.PatternLayout">
            <conversionPattern value="%date [%level] %message%newline" />
        </layout>
    </appender>
    <logger name="Logger" additivity="false">
        <level value="DEBUG" />
        <appender-ref ref="RollingLogFileAppender" />
    </logger>
</log4net>

Here are the significant portions of my code:

    static readonly string superLongText = new string('a', 1024);
    static readonly log4net.ILog log = log4net.LogManager.GetLogger("Logger");

    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        log4net.Config.XmlConfigurator.Configure("./TestConfig.xml")));
            
        for (int i = 0; i < 1000; i++)
        {
            log.Debug("" + i + " " + superLongText);
        }
    }

Total size (in bytes) of the generated logs after each execution of my program:
01: 1061890
02: 2123780
03: 3185670
04: 4247560
05: 5309450
06: 6371340
07: 7433230
08: 8495120
09: 9557010
10: 10618900

log files:
  LoggerTest20110404.log
  LoggerTest20110404.log.1
---
After run 19, LoggerTest20110404.log is 9463KB (almost 10MB), and
LoggerTest20110404.log.1 is 10241KB.
After run 20, LoggerTest20110404.log is 260KB, and
LoggerTest20110404.log.1 is 10241KB. However, file
LoggerTest20110404.log.2 is not created (I expect the logger to do
so).

Does anyone know why is it the case that the log information is not
preserved between run 19 and run 20? May I know if it is an error in
my xml configuration or a limitation of the RollingFileAppender and
the combination of settings I used?

Thanks.
