I was indexing events into Elasticsearch via the standard SocketAppender
into Logstash, but I stopped doing so since the SocketAppender was not
releasing threads. Great to see a direct approach, but I like to use
Logstash in the middle as a buffer in order to batch events.

The Log4j appender is batching events because it is using bulk indexing. If
you are worried, you can set the bulk action size to an extreme high value
and increase heap to some GB only for buffering log messages, together with
a reasonable flush interval.
