I am considering logging business events in a J2EE web application by using Java logging and FileHandler. I am wondering whether that could cause a performance bottleneck, since many log records will be written to the one file. I am doing google searches, but it seems people are not hindered by FileHandler.
What are your experiences and opinions?
Is logging a busy web application to one file with java logging and FileHandler likely to become performance bottleneck?
