Here is my setting in the file


log4j.rootLogger=DEBUG, T

log4j.appender.T= org.apache.log4j.DailyRollingFileAppender

In my java code, I have

************"record some information");


I don't see any of these log info be in the log file. Is there anything wrong on my setting ?

I think I have gotten it straight. it is working fine. However, I observed on thing and want to confirm here ----

I tested and used


It is supposed to generate a new log file every minute. But actually I found if there is not any new logging event, then it does not generate a new file in the format of "xxx.2010-03-16-xx-xx". Such timestamped file is only generated if there is any new logging event. For example, if there is no event from 12:00 to 12:15 then no log files created. But at 12:16 if a new logging event occurs, then it created a new log file created. Is this correct ?

If you're asking whether it will generate an empty logging file for a minute if no logging events occurred during that minute, the answer is no.
I agree. Here's the link:
