Log::Report::Dispatcher::Syslog - send messages to syslog
is a Log::Report::Dispatcher
# add syslog dispatcher
dispatcher SYSLOG => 'syslog', accept => 'NOTICE-'
, format_reason => 'IGNORE'
, to_prio => [ 'ALERT-' => 'err' ];
# disable default dispatcher, when daemon
dispatcher close => 'default';
This dispatchers produces output to syslog, based on the Sys::Syslog module (which will NOT be automatically installed for you, because some systems have a problem with this dependency).
The REASON for a message often uses names which are quite similar to the log-levels used by syslog. However: they have a different purpose. The REASON is used by the programmer to indicate the cause of the message: whether it was able to handle a certain situation. The syslog levels are there for the user's of the program (with syslog usually the system administrators). It is not unusual to see a "normal" error or mistake as a very serious situation in a production environment. So, you may wish to translate any message above reason MISTAKE into a LOG_CRIT.
The default translation table is list below. You can change the mapping using new(to_prio). See example in SYNOPSIS.
TRACE => LOG_DEBUG ERROR => LOG_ERR
ASSERT => LOG_DEBUG FAULT => LOG_ERR
INFO => LOG_INFO ALERT => LOG_ALERT
NOTICE => LOG_NOTICE FAILURE => LOG_EMERG
WARNING => LOG_WARNING PANIC => LOG_CRIT
MISTAKE => LOG_WARNING

With syslog, people tend not to include the REASON of the message in the logs, because that is already used to determine the destination of the message.
-Option --Defined in --Default
accept Log::Report::Dispatcher depend on mode
format_reason Log::Report::Dispatcher 'IGNORE'
identity <basename $0>
locale Log::Report::Dispatcher <system locale>
mode Log::Report::Dispatcher 'NORMAL'
Translate the text-strings into the specified charset, otherwise the sysadmin may get unreadable text.
The possible values for this depend (a little) on the system. POSIX only defines user, and local0 up to local7.
Any combination of flags as defined by Sys::Syslog, for instance pid, ndelay, and nowait.
[1.10] With a CODE reference you get your hands on the text before it gets sent to syslog. The three parameters are: the (translated) text, the related text domain object, and the message object. You may want to use context information from the latter.
[1.19] After the three positional parameters, there may be a list of pairs (named parameters) with additional info. This may contain a location with an ARRAY of information produced by caller() about the origin of the exception.
[1.00] Include the text-domain of the message in each logged message.
If specified, the log socket type will be initialized to this before openlog() is called. If not specified, the system default is used.
Extends "Accessors" in Log::Report::Dispatcher.
Returns the CODE ref which formats the syslog line.
Inherited, see "Accessors" in Log::Report::Dispatcher
Extends "Logging" in Log::Report::Dispatcher.
Inherited, see "Logging" in Log::Report::Dispatcher
Returns a level which is understood by syslog(3), based on a translation table. This can be changed with new(to_prio).
Extends "DETAILS" in Log::Report::Dispatcher.
