Hi Darryl,


Log4J in a cluster is an issue if you are using FileAppender. The problem arises because of multiple process from multiple machines writing to the same file. Either you need to synchronize these processes by writing a buffer around the FileAppender or use some other appender like the SocketAppender or the JMSAppender.
