Log::Log4perl::Layout::RFC3164

Layout in Syslog format

VERSION

Version 0.02

SYNOPSIS

This format is useful with the Log::Dispatch::Syslog class. Add this to your configuration file:

log4perl.appender.A1=Log::Dispatch::Syslog
log4perl.appender.A1.Filter=RangeAll
log4perl.appender.A1.ident=bandsman
log4perl.appender.A1.layout=Log::Log4perl::Layout::Syslog

Much of the actual formatting is done by the Sys::Syslog code called from Log::Dispatch::Syslog, however you can't use Log::Log4perl::Layout::NoopLayout since that doesn't insert the ident data that's needed by systems such as flutentd.

new

use Log::Log4perl::Layout::Syslog;
my $layout = Log::Log4perl::Layout::Syslog->new();

render

Render a message in the correct format.

BUGS

I can't work out how to get the ident given to Log::Dispatch::Syslog's constructor, so ident (facility in RFC3164 lingo) is always sent to LOG_USER.
