Log::Agent::Channel::Syslog - syslog logging channel for Log::Agent::Logger
require Log::Agent::Channel::Syslog; my $channel = Log::Agent::Channel::Syslog->make( # Specific attributes -prefix => prefix, -facility => "user", -showpid => 1, -socktype => "unix", -logopt => "ndelay", );
The syslog logging channels directs operations to syslog() via the Sys::Syslog(3) interface.
The creation routine make() takes the following switches:
Tell syslog() which facility to use (e.g. "user", "auth", "daemon"). Unlike the Sys::Syslog(3) interface, the facility is set once and for all: every message logged through this channel will use the same facility.
-logopt=> syslog options
Specifies logging options, under the form of a string containing zero or more of the words ndelay, cons or nowait.
The prefix here is syslog's identification string.
Set to true to have the PID of the process logged. It is false by default.
-socktype=> (unix | inet)
Specifies the logging socket type to use. The default behaviour is to use Sys:Syslog's default.
