Constructor & Destructor Documentation

log4cpp::SyslogAppender::SyslogAppender (const std::string & name, const std::string & syslogName, int facility = LOG_USER)

Parameters:

name The name of the Appender
syslogName The ident parameter in the openlog(3) call.
facility The syslog facility to log to. Defaults to LOG_USER.
