Subject: log4j writes numerous log entries

To whom it may concern,

I am using Selenium with TestNG to run automated tests and log4j v1.2 to write log files...

TestNG has an @Test and an @DataProvider annotation feature that allows me to pass parameters
saved in an Excel file to my test method...

When I only have one row in my Excel worksheet, the test method only runs once and log4j code
in the test method writes to my log file properly...

When I have two or more rows in my Excel worksheet, the test method runs multiple times, once
for each row in the Excel worksheet...

Unfortunately, on the second run, every log entry is duplicated...
On the third run, every log entry is triplicated...
On the fourth run, every log entry is quadruplicated, and so on...

How do I cause log4j to avoid this issue?

See attached log file...

The material section of java code involved in the issue is below...

String fileattachmenttype) throws InterruptedException, FileNotFoundException
