Java Torpedoes,
I am facing a peculiar problem with Log4j file logging.
log4j stop logging to file, all of a sudden, this generally happens after few hrs of starting the server or even after couple of days after starting the server.
And logging may or may not resume later, this is completely arbit in nature.

Following is the snippet from being used:-
________________________________________________________________, finesse_all

My application makes use of proprietry java code, a wrapper over log4j, for fine grained control on logging. And everything resides in a Jetty6 server environment.

I am using log4j version 1.0.4

I have tried -Dlog4j.debug JVM switch, but it is not providing any clue.

Can it be related to related to Jetty6 Vs log4j 1.0.4? Any concrete information around?

Had anyone of you faced this before? or else
Any pointers would be helpful.
