I was debugging the problem of nothing being written in my production
logs (it works fine in development mode), although the application was
working fine. On investigating I found out that
Rails.logger.auto_flushing was being set to 1000 in production mode.
I upgraded from rails 3.0.3 to 3.0.7 thinking that it might be an
issue with that version, but the problem still persists. I have fixed
the problem temporarily by adding Rails.logger.auto_flushing =1 in my
environment file, but am not able to establish as to why is this
happening. Why is auto_flushing being set to 1000 in production mode?
