>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-11949
>             Project: Cassandra
>          Issue Type: Bug
>            Reporter: Joel Knighton
>            Assignee: Mahdi Mohammadi
>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: 2.2.8, 3.9, 3.0.10
> In [CASSANDRA-10140], we enabled GC logging by default, since the overhead 
> was low and asking people providing diagnostics to restart can often make it 
> more difficult to diagnose problems.
> The default GC log path is set to {{$CASSANDRA_HOME/logs/gc.log}} in 
> {{cassandra-env.sh}}, a directory that is not present in a fresh 
> clone/install. Even if logback creates this directory later in startup, it is 
> not present when the JVM initiates GC logging, so GC logging will silently 
> fail for this first Cassandra run
> I haven't tested this in Windows but suspect the same problem may occur. 
> Since lots of tooling around Cassandra won't create this directory, we should 
> instead consider attempting to create it in our startup scripts.
