      Description

      I am using log4j 2.0-rc1, StructuredDataMessage and EventLogger to perform dynamic logging.

      Attached log4j2.xml configuration meant to:

      • rotate log files on hourly basis OR after file reaches 64 MB (whatever comes first)
      • archive logs that does not satisfy the file pattern

      Whenever JVM is restarted, log4j abandons "old" files un-archived:

      rw-rr-. 1 root root 317625 Feb 24 20:16 2014022419-sim-mdmlocal.mobidia.com.log
      rw-rr-. 1 root root 3333648 Feb 24 20:20 2014022420-activity-mdmlocal.mobidia.com.log

      Listing above shows that file 2014022419-sim-mdmlocal.mobidia.com.log was last touched by the system at 20:16, and should have been archived to .log.gz after restart, which occurred soon after
