Log4j 2 Memory-Mapped File Appender

During the weekend I dug into Java NIO, specifically, mapping files to memory to reduce I/O time. What's more, since I had a lot of free time on my hands, I developed a Log4j 2 memory-mapped file appender. On my machine, performance tests running on a single thread using the MemoryMappedFile appender show an improvement by a factor of 3 when compared to the RandomAccessFile appender.

  1. Hi Claude, what changes I have to do to use this appender as other log4j appenders.
