Constructor & Destructor Documentation

log4cpp::Appender::Appender (const std::string & name) [protected]

Constructor for Appender. Will only be used in getAppender() (and in derived classes of course).

Parameters:

name The name of this Appender.

log4cpp::Appender::~Appender () [virtual]

Destructor for Appender.

Member Function Documentation

virtual void log4cpp::Appender::close () [pure virtual]

Release any resources allocated within the appender such as file handles, network connections, etc.

Implemented in log4cpp::RemoteSyslogAppender, log4cpp::NTEventLogAppender, log4cpp::AppenderSkeleton, log4cpp::SyslogAppender, log4cpp::FileAppender, log4cpp::IdsaAppender, log4cpp::Win32DebugAppender, log4cpp::StringQueueAppender, log4cpp::AbortAppender, log4cpp::OstreamAppender, and log4cpp::BufferingAppender.

void log4cpp::Appender::closeAll () [static]

Call reopen() on all existing Appenders.

Returns:

true if all Appenders returned true on their reopen() call.

virtual void log4cpp::Appender::doAppend (const LoggingEvent & event) [pure virtual]

Log in Appender specific way.

Parameters:

event The LoggingEvent to log.

Implemented in log4cpp::AppenderSkeleton.

Appender * log4cpp::Appender::getAppender (const std::string & name) [static]

Get a pointer to an exitsing Appender.

Parameters:

name The name of the Appender to return.

Returns:

a pointer to an existing Appender, or NULL if no appender with the specfied name exists.

virtual Filter* log4cpp::Appender::getFilter () [pure virtual]

Get the Filter for this appender.

Returns:

the filter, or NULL if no filter has been set.

Implemented in log4cpp::AppenderSkeleton.

const std::string& log4cpp::Appender::getName () const [inline]

Get the name of this appender. The name identifies the appender.

Returns:

the name of the appender.

virtual Priority::Value log4cpp::Appender::getThreshold () [pure virtual]

Get the threshold priority of this Appender.

Returns:

the threshold

Implemented in log4cpp::AppenderSkeleton.

virtual bool log4cpp::Appender::reopen () [pure virtual]

Reopens the output destination of this Appender, e.g. the logfile or TCP socket.

Returns:

false if an error occured during reopening, true otherwise.

Implemented in log4cpp::RemoteSyslogAppender, log4cpp::NTEventLogAppender, log4cpp::SyslogAppender, log4cpp::AppenderSkeleton, log4cpp::FileAppender, log4cpp::IdsaAppender, log4cpp::StringQueueAppender, log4cpp::AbortAppender, and log4cpp::OstreamAppender.

bool log4cpp::Appender::reopenAll () [static]

Call reopen() on all existing Appenders.

Returns:

true if all Appenders returned true on their reopen() call.

virtual bool log4cpp::Appender::requiresLayout () const [pure virtual]

Check if the appender uses a layout.

Returns:

true if the appender implementation requires a layout.

Implemented in log4cpp::NTEventLogAppender, log4cpp::AppenderSkeleton, log4cpp::IdsaAppender, log4cpp::LayoutAppender, and log4cpp::AbortAppender.

virtual void log4cpp::Appender::setFilter (Filter * filter) [pure virtual]

Set a Filter for this appender.

Implemented in log4cpp::AppenderSkeleton.

virtual void log4cpp::Appender::setLayout (Layout * layout) [pure virtual]

Set the Layout for this appender.

Parameters:

layout The layout to use.

Implemented in log4cpp::NTEventLogAppender, log4cpp::AppenderSkeleton, log4cpp::IdsaAppender, log4cpp::AbortAppender, and log4cpp::LayoutAppender.

virtual void log4cpp::Appender::setThreshold (Priority::Value priority) [pure virtual]

Set the threshold priority of this Appender. The Appender will not appender LoggingEvents with a priority lower than the threshold. Use Priority::NOTSET to disable threshold checking.

Parameters:

priority The priority to set.

Implemented in log4cpp::AppenderSkeleton.
