Is closing log blocked? Write logger jmxConfigurator

I am using an item <jmxConfigurator/>

in logback; The jmxConfigurator states the following:

Thus, unless your application is a standalone Java application, you **MUST** unregister the JMXConfigurator instance from the JVM Mbeans server.


The protocol documentation also mentions a config item <shutdownHook/>

which according to the documentation does the following:

Installing a JVM shutdown hook is a convenient way for shutting down logback and releasing associated resources.


Is the item included <shutdownHook/>

in the deregistration order <jmxConfigurator/>

Yes Yes. Here's the proof from the debugger: enter image description here

However, there are several limitations:

  • <shutdownHook/>

    available only from version 1.1.3
  • although the documentation says simple is <shutdownHook/>

    enough, you must specify a property class

    : <shutdownHook class="ch.qos.logback.core.hook.DelayingShutdownHook"/>

    otherwise logback complains about:
    ERROR in ch.qos.logback.core.joran.action.ShutdownHookAction - Missing class name for shutdown hook. Near [shutdownHook] line 16

To make sure the JMXConfigurator is stopped, enable debug mode in the log configuration:

<configuration debug="true">


Then at the end of your logs, you will see:

INFO in ch.qos.logback.core.hook.DelayingShutdownHook@1a246fc6 - Logback context being closed via shutdown hook
INFO in ch.qos.logback.classic.jmx.JMXConfigurator (default) - onReset () method called JMXActivator [ch.qos.logback.classic: Name = default, Type = ch.qos.logback.classic.jmx.JMXConfigurator]
