winston-pg-native

A Winston 3.X compatible transport for PostgreSQL. Uses high performance of native bindings via libpq.

Origin

I forked https://github.com/petpano/winston-pg-native so that I could store the meta object as standard JSON. In the original repo it was being processed by flatted stringify method which makes it impossible to query directly because it has to be parsed by flatted parse method to make the data intelligible.

Installation

  $ npm install winston
  $ npm install @markjackson02/winston-pg-native

You must have a table in your PostgreSQL database, for example:

CREATE TABLE winston_logs
(
  timestamp timestamp without time zone DEFAULT now(),
  level character varying,
  message character varying,
  meta json
)

Options

  • connectionString: The PostgreSQL connection string. Required.
  • level: The winston's log level. Optional, default: info
  • poolConfig: Pool specific configuration parameters. Optional.
  • tableName: PostgreSQL table name definition. Optional.

See the default values used:

const options = {
  connectionString: 'postgres://username:password@localhost:5432/database',
  level: 'info',
  poolConfig: {
    // number of milliseconds to wait before timing out when connecting a new client
    // by default this is 0 which means no timeout
    connectionTimeoutMillis: 0,
    // number of milliseconds a client must sit idle in the pool and not be checked out
    // before it is disconnected from the backend and discarded
    // default is 10000 (10 seconds) - set to 0 to disable auto-disconnection of idle clients
    idleTimeoutMillis: 10000,
    // maximum number of clients the pool should contain
    // by default this is set to 10.
    max: 10
  },
  tableName: 'winston_logs'
};

Usage

const { Logger } = require('winston');
const Postgres = require('winston-pg-native');

const logger = new Logger({
  transports: [
    new Postgres({
      connectionString,
      level: 'info',
      poolConfig: {
        connectionTimeoutMillis: 0,
        idleTimeoutMillis: 0,
        max: 10
      },
      tableName: 'winston_logs'
    })
  ]
});

module.exports = logger;

Logging

logger.log('info', 'message', {});

Querying Logs

This transport supports querying of logs with Loggly-like options. See Loggly Search API

const options = {
  fields: ['message'],
  from: new Date() - 24 * 60 * 60 * 1000,
  until: new Date(),
  start: 0,
  limit: 10,
  order: 'desc'
};

//
// Find items logged between today and yesterday.
//
logger.query(options, (err, results) => {
  if (err) {
    throw err;
  }

  console.log(results);
});

Streaming Logs

Streaming allows you to stream your logs back

//
// Start at the end.
//
logger.stream({ start: -1 }).on('log', log => {
  console.log(log);
});
