      Description

      When logging messages larger than FastFileManager.DEFAULT_BUFFER_SIZE with appenders using FastFileManager, the logging fails internally with a BufferOverflowException and no log output is produced by these appenders.


      Test case

      import java.util.Arrays;
      
      import org.apache.logging.log4j.LogManager;
      
      public class TestBufferOverflow {
      
        public static void main(String[] args) {
      
          final String longMessage;
          {
            char[] chars = new char[384 * 1024];
            Arrays.fill(chars, 'x');
            longMessage = new String(chars);
          }
      
          LogManager.getLogger("TestBufferOverflow").info(longMessage);
        }
      }
