Root Cause

Issue with the log4j that rollingfile does not compress the files but only create the files in .zip or .gz format...This issue is solved in log4j2.6.2 version but the log4j used in Pega 7.2.1 is log4j1.2.14 version.


As part of all the versions prior to Pega 7.2.2 the log4j version used is log4j1.2.14 and log4j2.6.2 has been implemented from Pega 7.2.2 version and the issue is solved from log4j2.6.2 version.
