Stream residue server logs via various hooks

Quick start

  • npm install -g resitail
  • sudo resitail --config <config>

Notice the sudo, this is because all the files written by residue server will need sudo access as they may be owned by one user or another with limited permissions. Resitail needs to be able to read all of these log files.

Configuration

A configuration file looks like:

{
    "residue_config" : "<residue-config>",
    "hooks": [
    ... <see Connecting Hooks section below>
    ]
}

Creating Hook

Hook is essentially a JS module with following minimal requirements

  • A class with options constructor
  • A send function with data parameter.
  • Export this class

Once connected resitail will use this send function to send the logs

A most commonly used hook is resitail-f. It is even used in production servers for muflihun.com

Example:

"use strict";
 
function sampleHook (options) {
    this.options = options;
 
    this.send = (data) => {
        console.log(data);
    }
}
 
module.exports = (options) => new sampleHook(options);

Data contains following properties:

Property Description
event Event name (i.e, resitail:line, resitail:err)
event_type Type of event (i.e, info, error)
line Contents of event (either log line or error details etc)
channel Type of channel (i.e, client or logger)
channel_name Name of channel (i.e, client_id or logger_id)
logger_id Logger ID if channel is client
client_id Client ID if channel is logger

Connecting Hook

Once hook is ready you can connect it by adding it to configuration.

{
    "name": "<hook name>",
    <path or package>
    "enabled": false,
    "config": {
        "channels" : {
            "to_client" : true,
            "to_logger" : true
        }
        ... more configs specific to hook
    }
}

A fully working hook configuration looks like:

From registry (notice package and version):

{
    "name": "resitail-f",
    "package": "resitail-f",
    "version": "latest"
    "enabled": true,
    "config": {
        "channels" : {
            "to_client" : true,
            "to_logger" : true
        }
        port: 3000
    }
}

This will install the package globally.

Local (notice path):

{
    "name": "resitail-f",
    "path": "../resitail-f",
    "enabled": true,
    "config": {
        "channels" : {
            "to_client" : true,
            "to_logger" : true
        }
        port: 3000
    }
}
