Do you still have questions or are you all set?

If I understand your question correctly, then yes, each
file specifies its own logfile. I.e.:

log4j.appender.grouper_event.File = ${logdir}/grouper-api_event.log
log4j.appender.grouper_error.File = ${logdir}/grouper-api_error.log
log4j.appender.grouper_debug.File = ${logdir}/grouper-api_debug.log
log4j.appender.grouper_gb.File = ${logdir}/grouper-api_bench.log

log4j.appender.grouper_event.File = ${logdir}/grouper-ui_event.log
log4j.appender.grouper_error.File = ${logdir}/grouper-ui_error.log
log4j.appender.grouper_debug.File = ${logdir}/grouper-ui_debug.log
log4j.appender.grouper_gb.File = ${logdir}/grouper-ui_bench.log

log4j.appender.grouper_event.File = ${logdir}/grouper-ws_event.log
log4j.appender.grouper_error.File = ${logdir}/grouper-ws_error.log
log4j.appender.grouper_debug.File = ${logdir}/grouper-ws_debug.log
log4j.appender.grouper_gb.File = ${logdir}/grouper-ws_bench.log
