We're looking to use Logback with one of our services to aid in metrics recording.  I've noticed that the ability to use any form of buffered IO with the FileAppender class was removed.  The reason cited was that significant performance testing showed little benefit in doing so.  I was wondering if anybody could provide more detail concerning the environment and conditions that this testing was done.  We will generally be logging entries on the order of 1000's to 10,000's entries per second.  Does anybody know if Logback can handle this type of loading?  Thanks.
