Involved Source Files Package syslog provides a simple interface to the system log service. It can send messages to the syslog daemon using UNIX domain sockets, UDP or TCP. Only one call to Dial is necessary. On write failures, the syslog client will attempt to reconnect to the server and write again. The syslog package is frozen and is not accepting new features. Some external packages provide more functionality. See: https://godoc.org/?q=syslog syslog.go syslog_unix.go
Package-Level Type Names (total 2)
/* sort by: | */
The Priority is a combination of the syslog facility and severity. For example, LOG_ALERT | LOG_FTP sends an alert severity message from the FTP facility. The default severity is LOG_EMERG; the default facility is LOG_KERN. func Dial(network, raddr string, priority Priority, tag string) (*Writer, error) func New(priority Priority, tag string) (*Writer, error) func NewLogger(p Priority, logFlag int) (*log.Logger, error) const LOG_ALERT const LOG_AUTH const LOG_AUTHPRIV const LOG_CRIT const LOG_CRON const LOG_DAEMON const LOG_DEBUG const LOG_EMERG const LOG_ERR const LOG_FTP const LOG_INFO const LOG_KERN const LOG_LOCAL0 const LOG_LOCAL1 const LOG_LOCAL2 const LOG_LOCAL3 const LOG_LOCAL4 const LOG_LOCAL5 const LOG_LOCAL6 const LOG_LOCAL7 const LOG_LPR const LOG_MAIL const LOG_NEWS const LOG_NOTICE const LOG_SYSLOG const LOG_USER const LOG_UUCP const LOG_WARNING
A Writer is a connection to a syslog server. Alert logs a message with severity LOG_ALERT, ignoring the severity passed to New. Close closes a connection to the syslog daemon. Crit logs a message with severity LOG_CRIT, ignoring the severity passed to New. Debug logs a message with severity LOG_DEBUG, ignoring the severity passed to New. Emerg logs a message with severity LOG_EMERG, ignoring the severity passed to New. Err logs a message with severity LOG_ERR, ignoring the severity passed to New. Info logs a message with severity LOG_INFO, ignoring the severity passed to New. Notice logs a message with severity LOG_NOTICE, ignoring the severity passed to New. Warning logs a message with severity LOG_WARNING, ignoring the severity passed to New. Write sends a log message to the syslog daemon. *T : io.Closer *T : io.WriteCloser *T : io.Writer func Dial(network, raddr string, priority Priority, tag string) (*Writer, error) func New(priority Priority, tag string) (*Writer, error)
Package-Level Functions (total 3)
Dial establishes a connection to a log daemon by connecting to address raddr on the specified network. Each write to the returned writer sends a log message with the facility and severity (from priority) and tag. If tag is empty, the os.Args[0] is used. If network is empty, Dial will connect to the local syslog server. Otherwise, see the documentation for net.Dial for valid values of network and raddr.
New establishes a new connection to the system log daemon. Each write to the returned writer sends a log message with the given priority (a combination of the syslog facility and severity) and prefix tag. If tag is empty, the os.Args[0] is used.
NewLogger creates a log.Logger whose output is written to the system log service with the specified priority, a combination of the syslog facility and severity. The logFlag argument is the flag set passed through to log.New to create the Logger.
