You should also always add session/request id (you can use MDC mechanism) to easily grep all logs related to one request.

Also, always gave a name to threads in yours custom thread pool:

[2020-06-29 16:25:34] [thread-2-pool-3] [ERROR ] -some message....

vs

[2020-06-29 16:25:34] [old-session-remover-1] [ERROR ] -some message....
