Subject Re: Log file size grows larger than the size configured using log4j.appender.R.MaxFileSize
Date Thu, 25 Aug 2011 19:36:58 GMT
Hi,

I have the same problem some times. And I use log4cxx as a dll.

I think the problem appear when the appender have no time to roll the file.
I saw this into the stderr.
I'm not sure how to resolve the problem but I tried to add buffering, I have
not had the problem any more since this change.

Don't hesitate to keep me in touch. I can't reproduce the problem
systematicaly so I'm not sure of this solution.

Best regards.
