Net::Server::Log::Sys::Syslog(3) log via Syslog


use base qw(Net::Server::PreFork);
log_file => 'Sys::Syslog',
syslog_ident => 'myapp',


This module provides Sys::Syslog logging to the Net::Server system.


To begin using Sys::Syslog logging, simply set the Net::Server log_file configuration parameter to ``Sys::Syslog''.

If the magic name ``Sys::Syslog'' is used, all logging will take place via the Sys::Syslog module. If syslog is used the parameters "syslog_logsock", "syslog_ident", and "syslog_logopt",and "syslog_facility" may also be defined.

Only available if "log_file" is equal to ``Sys::Syslog''. May be either unix, inet, native, console, stream, udp, or tcp, or an arrayref of the types to try. Default is ``unix'' if the version of Sys::Syslog < 0.15 - otherwise the default is to not call setlogsock.

See Sys::Syslog.

Only available if "log_file" is equal to ``Sys::Syslog''. Id to prepend on syslog entries. Default is ``net_server''. See Sys::Syslog.
Only available if "log_file" is equal to ``Sys::Syslog''. May be either zero or more of ``pid'',``cons'',``ndelay'',``nowait''. Default is ``pid''. See Sys::Syslog.
Only available if "log_file" is equal to ``Sys::Syslog''. See Sys::Syslog and syslog. Default is ``daemon''.


The following arguments are available in the default "Net::Server" or "Net::Server::Single" modules. (Other personalities may use additional parameters and may optionally not use parameters from the base class.)

    Key               Value                    Default
    ## syslog parameters (if log_file eq Sys::Syslog)
    syslog_logsock    (native|unix|inet|udp
                       |tcp|stream|console)    unix (on Sys::Syslog < 0.15)
    syslog_ident      "identity"               "net_server"
    syslog_logopt     (cons|ndelay|nowait|pid) pid
    syslog_facility   \w+                      daemon


This method is called during the initilize_logging method of Net::Server. It returns a single code ref that will be stored under the log_function property of the Net::Server object. That code ref takes log_level and message as arguments and calls the initialized log4perl system.
This method is called if the log_function fails for some reason. It is passed the Net::Server object, the error that occurred while logging and an arrayref containing the log level and the message. In turn, this calls the legacy Net::Server::handle_syslog_error method.
