Fault::Delegate::DB - Database Logger Delegate.

UNIVERSAL Fault::Delegate Fault::Delegate::DB
This is a Logger delegate for database logging.
This Class manages a database logging connection to a local Mysql database server.
Remote database access is not supported at this time. It will require changes to the Fault::Dbh module, or improvements in MySQL (and total disappearance of old versions) which prevent exhaustion of connections if your processes rapidly create and destroy connections.
Also note that some attempt has been made to be thread-safe. I discovered that if a handle was created in a parent there was a possibility it could be reused in a child process. The parent and child then had interleaved communications with the server which completely confused it.
There should be two tables defined on the MySQL database server under the same database: log and fault. You must have a username and password that give you rights to select, insert and delete from them.
use Mydatabase; CREATE TABLE log ( \ LogId bigint unsigned auto_increment, \ Time datetime NOT NULL, \ Priority enum('emerg','alert','crit','err','warning','notice','info','debug') NOT NULL DEFAULT 'err', \ Process varchar(20) NOT NULL DEFAULT 'Unspecified', \ Type enum('BUG','SRV','NET','DATA','NOTE') NOT NULL DEFAULT 'BUG', \ Message blob NOT NULL, \ UNIQUE (LogId), \ PRIMARY KEY (LogId)); CREATE TABLE faults ( \ FaultId bigint unsigned auto_increment, \ Time datetime NOT NULL, \ Priority enum('emerg','alert','crit','err','warning','notice','info','debug') NOT NULL DEFAULT 'err', \ Process varchar(20) NOT NULL DEFAULT 'Unspecified', \ Type enum('BUG','SRV','NET','DATA','NOTE') NOT NULL DEFAULT 'BUG', \ Message blob NOT NULL, \ UNIQUE (FaultId), \ PRIMARY KEY (FaultId));
use Fault::Delegate::DB; use Fault::Msg; use Fault::Logger; my $msg = Fault::Msg ("Arf!"); my $baz = Fault::Delegate::DB->new ($host,$db,$user,$pass); my $waslogged = $baz->log ($msg); Fault::Logger->new ($baz); my $waslogged = Fault::Logger->log ("Bow! Wow!"); [See Fault::Logger for a detailed example.]

Create an object to mediate log and fault communications with a database server. It has only been tested with MySQL thus far.
$host can only be "localhost" at this time. If undef, $host will be set to localhost. If $host is invalid in any other way, a warning will be issued and $host will be set to localhost.
$dname is the name of the MySQL database in which the tables log and fault exist; $user is a user name that can read and write those tables; $pass is that users MySQL password.
Returns undef on failure to create the object and connect to the db.
Inserts a log message in the database and returns true if we succeeded in doing so.
Inserts a fault record for the current process name and the $msg string. If one already exists, do nothing. It always returns 0.
Removes a fault record that matches the current process name and the $msg string. If there is not, do nothing. It always returns 0.
Requests a current list of faults from the database when Logger initializes. @list contains a simple list of strings, where each string represents a unique active fault condition belonging to the current process.
("fault message 1", "fault message 2", ...)
If it cannot connect to the database, an empty list is returned.
Impliments the above overrides to the internal family protocol utilized by the Fault:Delegate log and test methods.
Local warning messages are issued if the db server cannot be reached or has any problems whatever.
