Hi Ceki,
           Thank you for your suggestions...."YES, what you mentioned is what exactly I'm
looking for."
Kindly resend the attachment as I could not find anything on it.

If possible pls let me know where can I get the complete manual as you mentioned so that it
would be great helpful for me to understand.

Hi Ram,

You can attach multiple appenders of any type to an AsyncAppender. An AsyncAppender can be
attached to a logger like any other appender. Whenever a loggine event needs to be logged,
the event is handed to the AsyncAppender which buffers it and returns control to the caller.
A separate dispatcher thread inside the AsyncAppender will process the events in the buffer
by calling all the appenders attached to the AsyncAppender. The event is then removed from
the buffer.

This is also explained in the complete manual. I have included a couple of pages as an attachment.
I hope this helps,

Ceki  For log4j documentation consider "The complete log4j manual"
