    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();
