Logging formatter which produces well-formatted RFC5424 Syslog Protocol messages

Project Description

This module implements a python `logging` formatter which produces well-formed RFC5424-compatible Syslog messages to a given socket.

[![Circle CI](](

## Usage

If you're configuring your loggers from code, you should use this formatter as below:

import logging
import logging.handlers
from syslog_rfc5424_formatter import RFC5424Formatter

def set_up_logging():
h = logging.handlers.SysLogHandler('/path/to/syslog_socket')

If you're using a more modern combination of a JSON/YAML config file and `logging.dictConfig`, your config file should look like the following (assuming YAML concrete syntax):

(): syslog_rfc5424_formatter.RFC5424Formatter

formatter: syslog
class: logging.handlers.SysLogHandler
address: "/path/to/syslog/socket"
facility: "ext://logging.handlers.SysLogHandler.LOG_USER"

level: INFO
- syslog
