Druid does not log anything into a log file


I try to send the logs into log files. Below is an example for logging coordinator activities.

I have added -Dlogfilename=coordinator and added file name in conf/druid/_common/log4j2.xml. I saw the log file coordinator created. But it is empty.

I must have missed something, and try to look for it on this web site, but cannot figure it out.

Thanks for your help.
