Subject [jira] [Commented] (LOG4J2-969) Refactor SyslogAppender so that Layout is a Plugin element
Date Fri, 16 Sep 2016 22:51:21 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-969?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15497640#comment-15497640

James Park commented on LOG4J2-969:

In reference to the BSD format (RFC3164) mentioned above, is the TAG field being logged by
i.e. If my xml uses <Syslog name="bsd" host="sysloghost" port="514" protocol="UDP"/>
and my slf4j logger writes "app msg1 msg2 msg3" using log4j2, I only see "msg1 msg2 msg3"
in syslog?

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-969
>             Project: Log4j 2
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Appenders, Layouts
>    Affects Versions: 2.2
>            Reporter: Paul D Johe
>              Labels: syslog, syslogappender
> There are quite a lot of attributes to the syslogappender that could have been simply
included as:
> {code}
> @PluginElement("layout") Layout<? extends Serializable> layout,
> {code}
> This is much more flexible (for example, extension of existing syslog layouts) and the
field 'format' becomes superfluous, as it is implied by the layout chosen (normally SyslogLayout
or Rfc5424Layout will be chosen).
> Furthermore, it becomes much clearer which attributes are for the RFC5424 format and
which are for the BSD format.
> Or at least add the possibility for a Layout element, which if does not exist will use
the existing code.
