Subject Re: Using Log4J2 2.8 (via the 1.2 API Bridge) for Tomcat8 Internal Logging - RollingFileAppender does not (cannot?) create new Log File
Date Tue, 11 Apr 2017 00:20:42 GMT
If you enable internal Log4j2 logging with <Configuration status ="trace"> at the top
of your configuration, then you should see internal Log4j2 logging on the console. 
It should show details of what happens during a rollover. Can you post that output?
