Subject [jira] [Commented] (LOG4J2-252) SMTPAppender: send multiple events in one mail
Date Mon, 11 Nov 2013 03:31:17 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-252?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13818675#comment-13818675

Anthony Baldocchi commented on LOG4J2-252:

This could be useful for networked appenders other than SMTPAppender (such as HTTPAppender).
 I'm imagining a scenario where multiple events are batched, perhaps converted to a complete
JSON layout, and then POSTed to a target server.

> I am using Log4j 2 for a Tomcat web application to send me an e-mail whenever an ERROR
occurs. Usually, more than one error is produced at one time, and I get a lot of e-mails over
a period of a few seconds.
> It would be great if the SMTPAppender could cluster more events into one mail. Of course,
one has to be sure that Log4j 2 is not waiting too long to send me the errors, which could
be solved by a timeout setting.
> So I propose the following: add a new timeout setting to the SMTPAppender. Whenever an
event that would trigger sending a mail occurs, wait for timeout seconds and bundle whatever
else events occur into this mail. Only then send the mail.
