We have a rolling file appender(with one day frequency). This logging is for a web based application.

We have a daily reboot of the systems at 12 in the night. When we try to look for previous day's logs, last day's logs are removed. New logs are created for 1 hour(12-1AM) and are replacing last day's logs.

Basically we are loosing logs for previous day, since the reboot for some reason is causing log4j to remove the previous log and create a new one for 1 hour.

Any feedback is appreciated.

If I have to guess, I'd see if your BackupIndex property set.

post you config, that might help. One thing to notice with Daily Roll overs ,according to Ceki Gulcu, is that the first logging event after midnight triggers rollover.
