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,

'.'yyyy-ww


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,
