syslogger

A drop-in replacement for the standard Logger Ruby library, that logs to the syslog instead of a log file. Contrary to the SyslogLogger library, you can specify the facility and the syslog options.

Build Status

Installation

$ gem install syslogger

Usage

require 'syslogger'

# Will send all messages to the local0 facility, adding the process id in the message
logger = Syslogger.new("app_name", Syslog::LOG_PID, Syslog::LOG_LOCAL0)

# Optionally split messages to the specified number of bytes
logger.max_octets = 480

# Send messages that are at least of the Logger::INFO level
logger.level = Logger::INFO # use Logger levels

logger.debug "will not appear"
