An Ain2 based Syslog transport for log4js-node


An Ain2 based Syslog transport for log4js-node.

  $ npm install log4js-ain2

To use this Syslog transport in log4js-node, you simply need to 'npm install' it and add it as an appender

Configuration file example: { "appenders": [ { type: 'log4js-ain2', tag: 'SYSLOG_TAG', facility: 'daemon', hostname: 'SYSLOG_SERVER', port: SYSLOG_PORT } ] }

Code example:

var log4js = require('log4js');
    appenders: [ 
            type: 'log4js-ain2', 
            tag: 'SYSLOG_TAG', 
            facility: 'daemon', 
            hostname: 'SYSLOG_SERVER', 
            port: SYSLOG_PORT
var logger = log4js.getLogger('log4js-ain2-tester');
logger.trace('trace -Entering cheese testing');
logger.debug('debug - Got cheese.');
logger.info('info - Cheese is Gouda.');
logger.warn('warn - Cheese is quite smelly.');
logger.error('error -Cheese is too ripe!');
logger.fatal('fatal - Cheese was breeding ground for listeria.');

NOTE: Options are passed through to ain2

This is the mapping from log4js-node levels to ain2 levels

ALL -> debug TRACE -> debug DEBUG -> debug INFO -> info WARN -> warn ERROR -> err FATAL -> crit
