Rolling File Appender creates .tmp files but never deletes them

    Details

      Description

      I have configured a RollingFileAppender with a TimeBasedRollingPolicy and a SizeAndTimeBasedFNATP. The logging works, the zip files are created, but .tmp als files with logging information are created in the working directory. These are of the size, i configured. I do not know why they are there and why they were created in the first place.

      My log configuration is as follows:

      LoggerContext context = (LoggerContext)LoggerFactory.getILoggerFactory();
      context.reset();

      PatternLayoutEncoder encoder = new PatternLayoutEncoder();
      encoder.setPattern("%-5level %-20([%thread]) %-36alias

      {36}

      - %msg%n");
      encoder.setContext(context);
      encoder.start();

      RollingFileAppender<ILoggingEvent> rfa = new RollingFileAppender<>();
      rfa.setFile(".log");
      rfa.setEncoder(encoder);

      RollingPolicyBase rolling = new TimeBasedRollingPolicy<>();
      SizeAndTimeBasedFNATP<ILoggingEvent> sizeandtime = new SizeAndTimeBasedFNATP<>();
      sizeandtime.setMaxFileSize("10MB");
      sizeandtime.setTimeBasedRollingPolicy((TimeBasedRollingPolicy) rolling);
      ((TimeBasedRollingPolicy) rolling).setTimeBasedFileNamingAndTriggeringPolicy(sizeandtime);
      ((TimeBasedRollingPolicy) rolling).setFileNamePattern("%d

      {yyyy-MM-dd}

      .%i.log.zip");
      ((TimeBasedRollingPolicy) rolling).setMaxHistory(30));
      rolling.setContext(encoder.getContext());rolling.setParent(rfa);
      rolling.start();
      rfa.setRollingPolicy(rolling);
