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:

-facility => facility

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.

-prefix => prefix

The prefix here is syslog's identification string.

-showpid => flag

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.
