bunyan-syslog-udp Build Status

A pure-JS implementation of bunyan syslog stream on top of UDP protocol.

Installation

npm install bunyan bunyan-syslog-udp

Verify that syslog via UDP is enabled on your system. By default, the syslog daemon listens on port 514.

In order to take advantage of the @CEE cookie functionality either rsyslog or syslog-ng must be installed.

For rsyslog, make sure the mmjsonparse module is loaded in /etc/rsyslog.conf

module(load="mmjsonparse") # for parsing CEE-enhanced syslog messages 

Usage

var bunyan = require('bunyan');
var bsyslog = require('bunyan-syslog-udp');
 
var bstream = bsyslog.createBunyanStream({
      name: 'udptest',      // Optional. Defaults to process.title || process.argv[0]
      host: '127.0.0.1',    // Optional. Defaults to '127.0.0.1'
      port: 514,            // Optional. Defaults to 514
      facility: 'local0',   // Case-insensitive. Optional. Defaults to local0
      prefix: '@cee: '      // Add @cee cookie to message
    });
 
var log = bunyan.createLogger({
  streams: [{
    type: 'raw',    // Always use 'raw' bunyan stream
    level: 'trace', // Minimum log level
    stream: bstream
  }]
});
 
// Emit a log message
log.debug("This is a test");
 
// and close the socket
bstream.close();
