The EM.log is just a redirection of standard out & standard error when the EM is started with EM_HOME/bin/EMCtrl.sh.
Its size is not controlled by any of the log4j properties in the EM properties file so the em.log will grow unlimited
Why are the Date and Time format different as shown below?

This is by design.
The 2/16/18 line is the Normal Introscope log Message.
The Feb 16 message is a service message .
The service message entries will be logged on EM.log, not Introscope log
