Hello Luciano,

You can't set the 30 minute threshold. However, you can force
immediate removal of nested FileAppender via SiftingAppender's
tracker.  Here is the code:

   SiftingAppende siftingAppender = ...
   AppenderTracer tracker = siftingAppender.getAppenderTracker();

where 'aKey' is the discriminator value used for the nested FileAppender.
