Log4j Not writing to HDFS.

Based on the following configuration i am expecting my log4j should write to HDFS folder (/myfolder/mysubfolder). But it's not even creating a file with the given name hadoop9.log. I tried by creating hadoop9.log manually on hdfs. Still it didn't work.

Am i missing anything in log4j.properties.?
