class RemoteSyslogChannel

Library: Net
Package: Logging
Header: Poco/Net/RemoteSyslogChannel.h

Description

This Channel implements remote syslog logging over UDP according to RFC 5424 "The Syslog Protocol" and RFC 5426 "Transmission of syslog messages over UDP".

In addition, RemoteSyslogListener also supports the "old" BSD syslog protocol, as described in RFC 3164.

Constructors

RemoteSyslogChannel

RemoteSyslogChannel();

Creates a RemoteSyslogChannel.

RemoteSyslogChannel

RemoteSyslogChannel(
    const std::string & address,
    const std::string & name,
    int facility = SYSLOG_USER,
    bool bsdFormat = false
);

Creates a RemoteSyslogChannel with the given target address, name, and facility. If bsdFormat is true, messages are formatted according to RFC 3164.

Destructor

~RemoteSyslogChannel protected virtual

~RemoteSyslogChannel();

Member Functions

close virtual

void close();

Closes the RemoteSyslogChannel.

getProperty virtual

std::string getProperty(
    const std::string & name
) const;

Returns the value of the property with the given name.

log virtual

void log(
    const Message & msg
);

Sends the message's text to the syslog service.

open virtual

void open();

Opens the RemoteSyslogChannel.

registerChannel static

static void registerChannel();

Registers the channel with the global LoggingFactory.

setProperty virtual

void setProperty(
    const std::string & name,
    const std::string & value
);

Sets the property with the given value.

The following properties are supported:

  • name: The name used to identify the source of log messages.
  • facility: The facility added to each log message. See the Facility enumeration for a list of supported values. The LOG_ prefix can be omitted and values are case insensitive (e.g. a facility value "mail" is recognized as SYSLOG_MAIL)
  • format: "bsd"/"rfc3164" (RFC 3164 format) or "new"/"rfc5424" (default)
  • loghost: The target IP address or host name where log messages are sent. Optionally, a port number (separated by a colon) can also be specified.
  • host: (optional) Host name included in syslog messages. If not specified, the host's real domain name or IP address will be used.

static int getPrio(
    const Message & msg
);
