Subject [jira] [Commented] (LOG4J2-949) No MDC parameters in Syslog
Date Thu, 12 Feb 2015 22:26:11 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-949?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14319125#comment-14319125
] 

Kanagha Pradha commented on LOG4J2-949:
---------------------------------------

Does syslog support recognizing the default conversion patterns like %level, %C, %F etc or
does all of them need to be populated in the MDC every time a message is logged? Knowing this
will greatly help us in designing to use syslog and other appenders.

> I can see my-mdc-key's value in the terminal just fine (as well as other MDC custom parameters
if I need to), but there is none is syslog's log file.
> The same concerns the LoggerFields collection. I have added it just to try overcoming
the issue with MDC, but also can't see any of those through syslog.
> I have tried to play with "mdcId", "mdcRequired", "mdcRequired", but with no success.
The only thing for sure is that my MDC custom fields do exist in the context, as I can see
them in the console, as well as Syslog appender starts with not exception when I specify them
through "mdcRequired" field.
> PS Just to clarify, the messages do get delivered to the syslog, but no MDC and no custom
logger fields there.
> Marked as "Critical" as we will have to migrate to logback or another framework if it
is not going to work, as this functionality is required for us.
