    Description

      Guys, this is regarding the missing documentation of the max index limit to the DefaultRolloverStrategy. By default, this is 7 based on the implementation. Unfortunately, this is not documented.

      Because of the lack of the documentation, one might assume it to be an unbounded limit (or rather high?). This might lead to data-loss, which happened in my case. Please document it.

      The original discussion is here: https://lists.apache.org/thread.html/092122655c1d0fba65712dc82f17a6f619a7e0a716a6f4130272773e@%3Clog4j-user.logging.apache.org%3E
