server.log doesn't rotate in JBoss Fuse Service Works

Solution Unverified - Updated -


We are running on JBoss Fuse Service Works (FSW) 6.0.0, and we configure size-rotating-file-handler for server.log for JBoss EAP.
But when the size of server.log reaches rotate-size (100MB as in the example code below), sometimes the log file doesn't rotate, there is no new log file generated.
The size-rotating-file-handler configuration in standalone.xml looks like:

<size-rotating-file-handler name="FILE">
        <pattern-formatter pattern="%d{HH:mm:ss,SSS} %-5p [%c] (%t) %s%E%n"/>
    <file relative-to="jboss.server.log.dir" path="server.log"/>
    <rotate-size value="100m"/>
    <max-backup-index value="20"/>
    <append value="false"/>
