Hi guys,

I'm using three log4j RollingFileAppenders in my application and only the one which I declare last works others don't roll the file. Has anyone faced the same issue? If this is a known problem then is there a solution (there are no matching hits on google). Here's my log4j.xml (I've changed some of the names as per my company's NDA)

Presumably you're rolling based on filesize, since you don't have a time-based policy in effect. So of course, if the logs stay under the threshold, they won't roll even if everything else is perfect.

Here's one of about 7 appenders I have in one app:

Sorry I messed up with my words. The file actually rolls after the 20MB limit but the old logs don't get stored in a different file name i.e. the backup is not working...
