WriterAppender appends log events to a standard output stream

Immediate flush means that the underlying writer or output stream
will be flushed at the end of each append operation. Immediate
flush is slower but ensures that each append request is actually
written. If <code>immediateFlush</code> is set to
<code>false</code>, then there is a good chance that the last few
logs events are not actually written to persistent media if and
when the application crashes.
<p>The <code>immediateFlush</code> variable is set to
<code>true</code> by default.

If the <b>ImmediateFlush</b> option is set to
<code>true</code>, the appender will flush at the end of each
write. This is the default behavior. If the option is set to
<code>false</code>, then the underlying stream can defer writing
to physical medium to a later time.
<p>Avoiding the flush operation at the end of each append results in
a performance gain of 10 to 20 percent. However, there is safety
tradeoff involved in skipping flushing. Indeed, when flushing is
skipped, then it is likely that the last few log events will not
be recorded on disk when the application exits. This is a high
price to pay even for a 20% performance gain.
