Hi,

Can you please direct me to some article which discusses the performance comparison between using System.out.println and using log4j to write log outputs.

Thanks

You should be pleased to know that when configured with the SimpleLayout performance tests have shown log4j to log as quickly as System.out.println.

Thanks. We are using log4j because on stress testing our application, we found that System.out.println is about the same as using log4j in async mode.

Appreicate your time and effort.
