i have in my tomcat web application log4j that is configured like this :
configured 100kb just to get quick test results , any way it seams like log4j roll the log only once and each time he detects that he need to make roll it just changes the previous file name and keep outputting to the main log file , i set log4j debug mode and the output it gives me looks like this :
as you can see it renaming me the myapp_gw.log.8 to myapp_gw.log.9 but doesn't keep the myapp_gw.log.8 ,
i need it to keep as i configured history of 15 files . what i need wrong here ?
Tomcat doesn't have anything to do with this. When applications log, they take full responsibility for their own logging.
Here's an appender config that works for me, though:
