Yep using it like this makes more sense, but unfortunately again doesn't work. I had a quick
look at source code (socketappender.cpp) and looks like the setOption function doesn't take
account of the threshold. 

void SocketAppender::setOption(const String& option,
        const String& value)
        if (StringHelper::equalsIgnoreCase(option, _T("remotehost")))
        else if (StringHelper::equalsIgnoreCase(option, _T("port")))
                setPort(OptionConverter::toInt(value, DEFAULT_PORT));
        else if (StringHelper::equalsIgnoreCase(option, _T("locationinfo")))
                setLocationInfo(OptionConverter::toBoolean(value, false));
        else if (StringHelper::equalsIgnoreCase(option, _T("reconnectiondelay")))
                setReconnectionDelay(OptionConverter::toInt(value, DEFAULT_RECONNECTION_DELAY));
                AppenderSkeleton::setOption(name, value);  // This is just an empty function


It seems simple enough to add another case to set the threshold variable - I'll try it out
later and get back to the list..

You are trying to set the threshold property on the SOCK appender, so the line should be:


Unfortunately, I could not find any unit test in either log4j or log4cxx that provided a sample
configuration file that demonstrated setting the threshold on an appender.
