What is async-logging

This module is trying to solve the discrepency between the async model & the common synchronous logging model

  • Logging types: heartbeat, atomic, transaction
  • Logging params: type, level, msg, uuid, event, parent
  • Transaction: this is the key structure we're trying to restore from async events model
  • Logging proxy: part of this module is trying to build a proxy service running websocket server accepting log payload as message pack
  • Logging client: the other part is a client which runs in the application runtime, connecting to websocket, transfer the log event over


Getting async-logging

npm install async-logging

Start a proxy service

var LogCluster = require("log-cluster.js").LogCluster,
CalPublisher = require("cal-publisher.js").CalPublisher;

new LogCluster({LogPublisher:CalPublisher});

Provide a Log Publisher

var CalPublisher = exports.CalPublisher = function(emitter, calMapper, calSender, calCallback){
    //a specific publisher, could be as simple as log file appender

Start a client

new require("log-client").LogClient({url:""}); //url must be given
