# you can also send in batches
pylog gen -t UDP -f Custom -g 0.01 -m 102831028 -b 1000
# and even use some common formatters like apache's..
pylog gen -t Stream -f ApacheError
# print fake data types that you can use in the config...
pylog list fake
# print a list of available transports
pylog list transports

A vagrantfile is provided: It will load a machine and install pylog on it in a virtualenv so that you can experiment with it. In the future, another machine will be provided with rabbitmq, logstash, elasticsearch and kibana so that you can experiment with different types of formats and transports.
