log4j Question

Currently, i am using log4j in my application for logging purpose. I make use of DailyRollingFileAppender with the file rolling twice each day (AM/PM). This creates as much as 60 different log files each month (2 * 30 days) - i want this to be limited to 10 log files. Is there anyway, this can be done ? I also want to preserve the properties of the DailyRollingFileAppender - use different file names for AM and PM.

Appreciate any help in this regard.

A weekly roll over is possible with this config option,

For more details, you may want to look at the DailyRollingFileAppender documentation. I'd like to think that there would be an option available somewhere, may not be a straight forward one to your exact requirement.

Good Luck,
I agree. Here's the link:
