Subject [jira] [Commented] (LOG4J2-1210) Burst filter / summarizer for SMTP appender
Date Thu, 03 Mar 2016 08:07:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-1210?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15177458#comment-15177458

Thies Wellpott commented on LOG4J2-1210:
----------------------------------------

Note: The referenced issue LOG4J2-1192 is closed by now, but this is only about the dynamic
subject using PatternLayout. My provided solution (ExtendedSmtpAppender) also contains the
implementation for this issue.
If somebody with experience in the log4j2 source and doc environment may include it, this
would be fine.
Note: I did not write unit tests for the ExtendedSmtpAppender, but I performed some manual
test and already use it for some months in production and it works fine.

>             Project: Log4j 2
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Appenders
>    Affects Versions: 2.3, 2.4, 2.4.1
>            Reporter: Thies Wellpott

> Typical use case for SMTP appender: Send all ERROR-logs via Email to support/developer.
> On a broken network or database this can cause hundreds of the same error email, flooding
your inbox.
> Collecting events and sending of a summary email after a configurable time would be great.
