here is my log4j configration



I am assuming this configration will create one log file daily with a max size of 5Mb and if the log size exceeds it will create another new one.

but in server I noticed several log files with the size 3kb , 5kb etc. not even a single log file is of size 5Mb and a new log fileis created for every few minutes, please tell me what is wrong with my configration .

Actually the API documentation for DailyRollingFileAppender is quite explicit about how it works. It starts out by saying
The rolling schedule is specified by the DatePattern option.

And then it goes on to explain exactly how that works. If you read it and then look at your choice for the DatePattern option you will see exactly why it is working the way it is.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
