Subject Is DailyRollingFileAppender efficient or safe to use if log file is huge?
Date Mon, 02 Nov 2009 20:49:17 GMT


I am using log4j 1.2.15. I am pondering between DailyRollingFileAppender and RollingFileAppender.


For RollingFileAppender, I can enforce file size limit and MaxBackupIndex. But for DailyRollingFileAppender,
i can not limit either. 

Aside from being difficult to planing disk space usage, does DailyRollingFileAppender cause
inefficiency if the log file become huge? In theory, the log4j just keeps a file descriptor
and append to the end. It should not matter that much if the log file is big or small. 


Did I miss anything. Any feedback or recommendation is appreciated.
