      Description

      The KafkaLog4jAppender (shipped with Kafka and usable with log4j), has a syncsend property that improves performance significantly by not blocking a send to Kafka. I've tried many other configuration settings and setups, but find that none of these approaches improved the logging performance to Kafka as significantly as setting the syncsend property to false.

      Unfortunately, the syncsend property is not supported by the KafkaAppender shipped with log4j2 and the KafkaLog4jAppender only supports log4j, so I am stuck with forking the code and making the change myself.

      Could you please introduce this property in the KafkaAppender in log4j2?
