Java 5 logging in JSPs and Tomcat

I'm using Java logging in my jsps running in a Tomcat container. However, I find that locks are not released soon enough and the number of log files quickly grows to 100 and stops (that's the max locks). The size of the log files is just 1 or 2 KB. Is there a way to control this?
I am using it this way:

Logger logger = Logger.getLogger("AjaxLogger");

Handler ajaxLog = null;
try {
ajaxLog = new FileHandler("%t/ajax%u.%g.log",true);
catch (IOException ioe) {
logger.severe("Could not create ajax log");
if (ajaxLog != null) {
String logMsg=request.getParameter("logMsg");
if(logMsg!=null) {;


I agree. Here's the link:
