Subject Re: [OT] log4j to file or db -- which will be faster
Date Wed, 22 Oct 2003 23:25:19 GMT
A file will be faster unless your file system is really crappy or you are 
writing to a nfs mounted or other remote filesystem. (Even then it will still 
probably faster).

IIRC, there is an ASyncronous appender which is a layer between your logging 
code and the real logger. What it does is queue up all writes so your 
application code can execute as quickly as possible. But it can only be 
configured via an XML file, not via properties files.

using either a FileAppender or a JDBCAppender. Which one do you think will be a faster operation
under load? I guess one way to find out would be to actually try it out, but was wondering
if you guys had thoughts about it.
