Log4Net RollingFileAppender multiple files RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-1565286790 posted

    I am attempting to use Log4Net RollingFileAppender and set the configuration via C#.  I wish to write to several different log files, different data to each log file. Each log file has a class with code like the one below. What is happening is that the code is writing the same logging data across all of the log files (5 files) when it should be writing certain parts to each file. Can someone point me in the write direction as to what I am missing in the code below?

    private static bool isConfigured = false;
             private static ILog iLog;
            private static void ConfigureCS()
                     if (isConfigured)
                    log4net.GlobalContext.Properties["LogName"] = Toggles.strGetLogCalendarSettingsFileName;
                     var loggerName = "RFA_CS"; // computerName;
                     var loggerCS = (log4net.Repository.Hierarchy.Logger)log4net.LogManager.GetRepository().GetLogger(loggerName);
                     loggerCS.Additivity = true;
                    //Add the default log appender if none exist
                     if (loggerCS.Appenders.Count == 0)
                         //directory to deposit log
                         string strGetLogDIR = Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.LocalApplicationData) + "\\";
                         var directoryName = strGetLogDIR + Toggles.strGetPinPointTitle + "\\";
                        //If the directory doesn't exist then create it
                         if (!Directory.Exists(directoryName))
                        var fileName = Path.Combine(directoryName, Toggles.strGetLogCalendarSettingsFileName);
                        //Create the rolling file appender
                         var appender = new log4net.Appender.RollingFileAppender();
                         appender.Name = "RFA_CS";
                         appender.File = fileName;
                        appender.StaticLogFileName = true;
                         appender.AppendToFile = true;
                         appender.RollingStyle = log4net.Appender.RollingFileAppender.RollingMode.Size;
                         appender.MaxSizeRollBackups = Toggles.intGetMaxSizeRollBackups; // 4;
                         appender.MaximumFileSize = Toggles.strGetLoggingMaxSize; // "1MB";
                         appender.PreserveLogFileNameExtension = true;
                        //Configure the layout of the trace message write
                         var layout = new log4net.Layout.PatternLayout()
                             ConversionPattern = "%date{yyyy-MM-dd hh:mm:ss} %-5level - %message%newline"
                             //ConversionPattern = "%date{hh:mm:ss.fff} [%thread] %-5level - %message%newline"
                             //ConversionPattern = "%date{hh:mm:ss ttt} - %message%newline"
                        appender.Layout = layout;
                        //Let log4net configure itself based on the values provided
                    iLog = LogManager.GetLogger("RFA_CS");
                     isConfigured = true;
                    //Info("Logging Configured at " + DateTime.Now.ToString("g"));
                 catch (Exception ex)
            //public static event EventHandler<ExceptionLoggedEventArgs> ExceptionLogged;
            public static void Debug(object message) { ConfigureCS(); iLog.Debug(message); }
             public static void Debug(object message, Exception exception) { ConfigureCS(); iLog.Debug(message, exception); }
            public static void Error(object message) { ConfigureCS(); iLog.Error(message); }
             public static void Error(object message, Exception exception) { ConfigureCS(); iLog.Error(message, exception); }
            public static void Fatal(object message) { ConfigureCS(); iLog.Fatal(message); }
             public static void Fatal(object message, Exception exception) { ConfigureCS(); iLog.Fatal(message, exception); }
            public static void Info(object message) { ConfigureCS(); iLog.Info(message); }
             public static void Info(object message, Exception exception) { ConfigureCS(); iLog.Info(message, exception); }
            public static void Warn(object message) { ConfigureCS(); iLog.Warn(message); }
             public static void Warn(object message, Exception exception) { ConfigureCS(); iLog.Warn(message, exception); }
