      Description

      Hi Team,

      I am migrating my project from log4j1.x to log4j2.11.2 version, while migration am seeing below issue could you please provide solution on it.

      Log4j2 version : 

      log4j-slf4j-impl-2.11.2
      log4j-1.2-api-2.11.2
      log4j-1.2-core-2.11.2

      Issue: log files are not roll out every day midnight with new file name, it still writing it to old logs for some hours then switching to new logs.

      Below my log4j2.xml config.

      <Routing name="DEBUG">
      <Routes pattern="$${ctx:ServiceName}">
      <Route key="ConsuerManager">
      <RollingFile name="Rolling-${ctx:ServiceName}"
      fileName="/app/log/Consumer_${date:yyyy-MM-dd}.log"
      filePattern="/app/log/Consumer_%d{yyyy-MM-dd}.log" append="true">
      <LevelRangeFilter minLevel="INFO" maxLevel="DEBUG" onMatch="ACCEPT" onMismatch="DENY" />
      <PatternLayout pattern="${LOG_PATTERN}" />
      <Policies>
      <TimeBasedTriggeringPo licy interval="1" modulate="true" />
      </Policies>
      </RollingFile>
      </Route>
      <Route key="AppProvider">
      <RollingFile name="Rolling-${ctx:ServiceName}"
      fileName="/app/log/Provider_${date:yyyy-MM-dd}.log"
      filePattern="/app/log/Provider_%d{yyyy-MM-dd}.log" append="true">
      <LevelRangeFilter minLevel="INFO" maxLevel="DEBUG" onMatch="ACCEPT" onMismatch="DENY" />
      <PatternLayout pattern="${LOG_PATTERN}" />
      <Policies>
      <TimeBasedTriggeringPolicy interval="1" modulate="true" />
      </Policies></RollingFile></Route>
      </Routes>
      </Routing>
