> Hello,
> I just want to sugges to apply the following modifications to Log4net (apply also to
> *Create a SyslogLayout layout class that formats messages into Syslog format (both RFC3164
and RFC5424). Currently you have to search for a good PatternLayout that matches RFC specifications.
Even if that could be, ultimately, inheriting from PatternLayout and setting a constant pattern...
At least we have a valid layout in a class
> *RemoteSyslogAppender currently prepends the PriVal field to the regular message formatted
accordingly with the pattern. SimpleLayout might not work properly. Suggesting to make RemoteSyslogAppender
work only with properly implemented SyslogLayout[s] for both the RFCs
> Having a Syslog layout, especially for RFC5424 which is not only recent, but supports
a full UTC timestamp complete with year (unsupported by RFC3164) is very useful when performing
long-term log analysis and allows to store messages in Syslog format into files, almost like
syslog-ng daemon does with /var/log/messages.
> I'm currently working on an open source logging framework (Logbus-ng) that does only
log collection and broadcasting and *that we want to make fully compatible with Log4xxx*:
our team has already implemented a fully working formatter for Syslog RFC5424 messages. If
you need code, we can share it.
> I personally plan to implement these two features as classes external to Log4net, but
I would like to suggest the Log4net dev team to do so before us because I feel the utility
of such a work for the community.
> Thank you.
