That depends on whether or not you want to log to the console or a file, really.

It depends upon requirement. Console appender shows logging information on console and FileAppender writes it into logging file.
FileAppender's logging files are good for future reference.

What did your performance testing show was the difference between the tow?

Performance? That's really an odd question. Since they don't do anywhere near the same thing, there wouldn't be any reason to choose between them based on performance.

But if it's just a theoretical question, with no practical meaning at all, then sure, go ahead, measure away.
