By default, log4net is a synchronous logging mechanism, and I was wondering if there was a way to have asynchronous logging with log4net?
If you go to the log4net website, you can find some examples, at least one of which is an asynchronous Appender.
Note that I have not used any of these examples, so I cannot vouch for them one way or the other.
Here is a link to the actual asynchronous appender from the log4net Examples area in their code repository:
I looked at it briefly, and it apparently acts as a wrapper around one or more "conventional" Appenders. On each logging request (containing one or more LoggingEvent objects), a ThreadPool thread is used to forward the LoggingEvents to the list of wrapped Appenders.
