--------------------------------------------------------------

Java 8 is not required. We just need to pass a date format String to the 
underlying {{SimpleLogger}} used by the status logger.

Something like the below should suffice:

{code}
    private StatusLogger(final String name, final MessageFactory 
messageFactory) {
        super(name, messageFactory);
        this.logger = new SimpleLogger("StatusLogger", Level.ERROR, false, 
true, false, false, 
                System.getProperty("log4j2.StatusLogger.dateformat", 
Strings.EMPTY),
                messageFactory, PROPS, System.err);
        this.listenersLevel = Level.toLevel(DEFAULT_STATUS_LEVEL, 
Level.WARN).intLevel();
...
{code}

Then, users can set system property {{log4j2.StatusLogger.dateformat}} to 
{{"yyyy-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ss,SSS"}} to get the ISO8601 timestamp format in the 
status logs.

Alternatively, this setting can be specified in a 
{{log4j2.StatusLogger.properties}} file in the classpath.

>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Core
>    Affects Versions: 2.10.0
>            Reporter: Atle Tokle
>            Priority: Minor
>
> We use a log-indexing system that uses the date-format to see where next log 
> line begins.
> And have a requirement to standardize on ISO8601 format. But the lines 
> written by StatusLogger when Log4j2 has a different format. I would like a 
> configuration option that could specify the format. i.e.
> {code:java}
> <configuration verbose="true" status="trace" dateformat="ISO8601" >
> ...
> ...
> </configuration>{code}
