Subject Re: syslog-ng disconnect causes thread to silently die?
Date Tue, 19 Jan 2016 20:32:31 GMT
Sorry, on further investigation, it appears that the thread does not die. But the subsequent
log messages are lost from the syslog side.  I found https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-122,
but I am not sure what to make of it.  I’ve also tried playing with immediateFail and reconnectionDelayMillis,
but nothing seems to have the effect I want.

an error and closes the connection.  What happens immediately after is unclear, but it appears
that the java thread just dies silently.  The thread itself is a quartz scheduler worker thread,
but I thought I’d ask here to see whether you guys think this is a log4j related issue.
 There are no java application logs (console or otherwise) to suggest what happened.
