log: enhance syslog logging using CEE format
This patch enables to use syslog as log target in addition to the default. The logs are sent in CEE format ( This logging can be disabled using compile time option by ./configure --disable-syslog (or) rpmbuild glusterfs.tar.gz --without syslog The framework provides two api void gf_openlog (const char *ident, int option, int facility); void gf_syslog (int error_code, int facility_priority, char *format, ...); consumers need to call gf_openlog() prior to gf_syslog() like the way traditional syslog function calls. error_code is mandatory when using gf_syslog(). For example, gf_openlog (NULL, -1, -1); gf_syslog (GF_ERR_DEV, LOG_ERR, "error reading configuration file"); Using syslog, admin is free to configure logger to * reduce repeated log messages * forward logs to remote logger * execute a command on certain log pattern * alert people for certain log pattern by email, snmp etc * and many more Change-Id: Ibacbcbbc547192893fc4a46b387496b622e4811f BUG: 928648 Signed-off-by: Bala.FA <> Reviewed-on: Tested-by: Gluster Build System <> Reviewed-by: Vijay Bellur <>
