Subject [jira] [Commented] (LOG4J2-1334) Add LogEventFactory that reuses a cached LogEvent for garbage-free synchronous logging
Date Sun, 17 Apr 2016 13:38:25 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-1334?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15244659#comment-15244659

Remko Popma commented on LOG4J2-1334:

I made good progress on this ticket in the last week. Still to do:

- I need to add more unit tests for MutableLogEvent and the ReusableLogEventFactory.
- Two of the current unit tests fail when I enable synchronous garbage-free logging: CsvParameterLayoutTest
and one more (forgot which). Both are related to LOG4J2-1342: passing on parameters in a ParameterizedMessage
from the application thread to the asynchronous background thread.
- The new GcFreeMixedSyncAyncLoggingTest fails because objects are still being allocated somewhere
when enqueueing a MutableLogEvent.
- Started working on a latency test to compare garbage-free logging to classic logging.

> Until now I kept the scope of the garbage-free logging epic LOG4J2-1270 limited to asynchronous
logging with all loggers asynchronous. This seemed a natural thing to do since async loggers
already have pre-allocated all LogEvent instances.
> Now that LOG4J2-1270 is nearing completion it looks as if the only thing that is required
to allow synchronous logging to be garbage-free is a reusable LogEvent implementation, stored
in a ThreadLocal. This ticket is to analyse  and track the work for this option.
