In your JavaScript code append the file endpoint.

logger.append(require("cinovo-logger-file")(true, true, true, true, "./log", "log", ".txt", 1, 60, 10));

Log something

logger.debug("all values are ok");
logger.info("myscript", "all values are ok");
logger.error("myscript", "some values are not ok", {a: 10, b: 20});
logger.exception("myscript", "some values are not ok", new Error("error"));
logger.critical("myscript", "all values are not ok", {a: 10, b: 20}, function(err) { ... });

Done

Now you can log to file endpoint.

API

(debug, info, error, critial, dir, fileSuffix, filePrefix, maxFileSize, maxFileAge, maxFiles, callback)

Async creates a file Endpoint.

  • debug: Boolean - true if the endpoint should log debug level
  • info: Boolean - true if the endpoint should log info level
  • error: Boolean - true if the endpoint should log error level
  • critical: Boolean - true if the endpoint should log critical level
  • dir: String - directory in which log files are saved.
  • filePrefix: String -
  • fileSuffix: String -
  • maxFileSize: Number - bytes
  • maxFileAge: Number - seconds
  • maxFiles: Number - Maximum Number of files in dir (oldest are removed first)
  • callback: Function(err, endpoint) - fired if the endpoint is ready to use
    • err: Error (optional)
    • endpoint: Endpoint - use the endpoint like this logger.append(endpoint)

Events

_stop(lastFile)

When the endpoint is stopped.

  • lastFile: String - path and name

error(err)

Something went wrong in the background e.g. roll because of max age reached.

  • err: Error

openFile(file)

File was opened and is ready to be written.

  • file: String - path and name

Example:

var endpoint = require("cinovo-logger-file")(true, true, true, true, "./log", "log", ".txt", 1, 60, 10);
endpoint.on("openFile", function(file) { ... });
logger.append(endpoint);

createFile(file)

File was created and is ready to be written.

  • file: String - path and name

Example:

var endpoint = require("cinovo-logger-file")(true, true, true, true, "./log", "log", ".txt", 1, 60, 10);
endpoint.on("createFile", function(file) { ... });
logger.append(endpoint);

rollFile(oldFile, newFile)

If the file size gets to big or the file gets to old the current file is replaced with a new one. This is called a roll.

  • oldFile: String - file that is too big or too old (path and name)
  • newFile: String - file ready to be written (path and name)

Example:

var endpoint = require("cinovo-logger-file")(true, true, true, true, "./log", "log", ".txt", 1, 60, 10);
endpoint.on("closeFile", function(file) { ... });
logger.append(endpoint);

closeFile(file)

File was closed and is ready to be written.

  • file: String - path and name

Example:

var endpoint = require("cinovo-logger-file")(true, true, true, true, "./log", "log", ".txt", 1, 60, 10);
endpoint.on("closeFile", function(file) { ... });
logger.append(endpoint);

busy()

If the log file can not be written as fast as you send logs. In this situation you are losing log entries!

ysub()

If the log file can continue to be written.
