Subject [jira] [Commented] (LOG4J2-1490) Log4j2 is creating empty log files.
Date Tue, 02 Aug 2016 09:55:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-1490?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15403698#comment-15403698

Krzysztof Taborski commented on LOG4J2-1490:

Yes - seems like similar problem.
I believe it would be better to actually create log file when first message is being logged
(to this file).

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-1490
>             Project: Log4j 2
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Appenders
>    Affects Versions: 2.6.2
>            Reporter: Krzysztof Taborski
>            Priority: Minor
> I've started migration from logback and found out one quite annoying issue: since I often
change logDirectory for FileAppenders I'm getting a lot of empty log files.
> As far as I know log4j2 is creating file (according to FileAppender) even if there is
no output. Maybe such feature should be parametrized?
