Improve logging support via JMX Console

Improve logging support via JMX Console

Currently in the method on the JMX Console of: loggersLevels, levels are listed such as:


This is not intuitive to the user which logs will be put into a 'DEBUG' log level.   The only way to map this is to go into the log4j2_root.yaml file and check what the AppenderRef is to give some idea of what logs will be set into debug, and then look up each entry where that appender is mentioned to reveal which specific logs are set into debug.

The change:

Add which logs the appender will modify in the JMX, or at the very least, write the AppenderRef if it exists for that appender.  This will mitigate SOME of the confusion.

I am surprised that for such a thing an enhancement request or an Idea Exchange must be created. It should be in the interest of the manufacturer that the logging should be well and uniformly configured.
