What log sources are supported?

To get logs into logFaces the following frameworks, specs and teqniques can be used:

  • Apache Logging Framework, any appender using log4j DTD format will work. We provide our own Java appenders.

  • NLog framework, great for .Net apps.

  • Syslog RFC5424 or RFC3164 clients.

  • Client JS apps can POST directly to logFaces receivers, we support cross domain calls. We have a simple wrapper module to get you started right away.

  • Node.js applications can also POST directly or use an appender we contributed in log4js-node project. We have contributed UDP and HTTP appenders to this project.

  • Log files in any text format can be processed with parsers using regular expressions.

See user manual for more details.
