Detailed Description

The logging API provides four main parts (basics, filtering, threading & blackbox).

The idea behind this logging system is not to be prescriptive but to provide a set of tools to help the developer achieve what they want quickly and easily.

Basic logging API.

Call qb_log() to generate a log message. Then to write the message somewhere meaningful call qb_log_ctl() to configure the targets.

Simplest possible use:

main() {
     qb_log_init("simple-log", LOG_DAEMON, LOG_INFO);
        // ...
     qb_log(LOG_WARNING, "watch out");
        // ...
     qb_log_fini();
}

Configuring log targets.

A log target can be syslog, stderr, the blackbox, stdout, or a text file. By default only syslog is enabled.

To enable a target do the following:

qb_log_ctl(QB_LOG_BLACKBOX, QB_LOG_CONF_ENABLED, QB_TRUE);

syslog, stderr, the blackbox, and stdout are static (they don't need to be created, just enabled or disabled). However you can open multiple logfiles (QB_LOG_TARGET_MAX - QB_LOG_TARGET_STATIC_MAX). To do this, use the following code:

mytarget = qb_log_file_open("/var/log/mylogfile");
qb_log_ctl(mytarget, QB_LOG_CONF_ENABLED, QB_TRUE);

Once your targets are enabled/opened you can configure them as follows: Configure the size of blackbox

qb_log_ctl(QB_LOG_BLACKBOX, QB_LOG_CONF_SIZE, 1024*10);

Make logging to file threaded:

qb_log_ctl(mytarget, QB_LOG_CONF_THREADED, QB_TRUE);

To workaround your syslog daemon filtering all messages > LOG_INFO

qb_log_ctl(QB_LOG_SYSLOG, QB_LOG_CONF_PRIORITY_BUMP,
      LOG_INFO - LOG_DEBUG);

To ensure all logs to file targets are fsync'ed (default QB_FALSE)

qb_log_ctl(mytarget, QB_LOG_CONF_FILE_SYNC, QB_TRUE);

Filtering messages.

To have more power over what log messages go to which target you can apply filters to the targets. What happens is the desired callsites have the correct bit set. Then when the log message is generated it gets sent to the targets based on which bit is set in the callsite's 'target' bitmap. Messages can be filtered based on the:

1.
filename + priority
2.
function name + priority
3.
format string + priority

So to make all logs from evil_function() go to stderr, do the following:

qb_log_filter_ctl(QB_LOG_STDERR, QB_LOG_FILTER_ADD,
             QB_LOG_FILTER_FUNCTION, "evil_function", LOG_TRACE);

So to make all logs from totem* (with a priority <= LOG_INFO) go to stderr, do the following:

qb_log_filter_ctl(QB_LOG_STDERR, QB_LOG_FILTER_ADD,
             QB_LOG_FILTER_FILE, "totem", LOG_INFO);

So to make all logs with the substring 'ringbuffer' go to stderr, do the following:

qb_log_filter_ctl(QB_LOG_STDERR, QB_LOG_FILTER_ADD,
             QB_LOG_FILTER_FORMAT, "ringbuffer", LOG_TRACE);

Thread safe non-blocking logging.

Logging is only thread safe when threaded logging is in use. If you plan on logging from multiple threads, you must initialize libqb's logger thread and use qb_log_filter_ctl to set the QB_LOG_CONF_THREADED flag on all the logging targets in use.

To achieve non-blocking logging, so that any calls to write() or syslog() will not hold up your program, you can use threaded logging as well.

Threaded logging use:

main() {
     qb_log_init("simple-log", LOG_DAEMON, LOG_INFO);
     qb_log_ctl(QB_LOG_SYSLOG, QB_LOG_CONF_THREADED, QB_TRUE);
        // ...
        daemonize();
        // call this after you fork()
        qb_log_thread_start();
        // ...
     qb_log(LOG_WARNING, "watch out");
        // ...
     qb_log_fini();
}

A blackbox for in-field diagnosis.

This stores log messages in a ringbuffer so they can be written to file if the program crashes (you will need to catch SIGSEGV). These can then be easily printed out later.

Note:

the blackbox is not enabled by default.

Blackbox usage:

static void sigsegv_handler(int sig)
{
        (void)signal (SIGSEGV, SIG_DFL);
        qb_log_blackbox_write_to_file("simple-log.fdata");
        qb_log_fini();
        raise(SIGSEGV);
}

main() {

     signal(SIGSEGV, sigsegv_handler);

     qb_log_init("simple-log", LOG_DAEMON, LOG_INFO);
     qb_log_filter_ctl(QB_LOG_BLACKBOX, QB_LOG_FILTER_ADD,
                  QB_LOG_FILTER_FILE, "*", LOG_DEBUG);
     qb_log_ctl(QB_LOG_BLACKBOX, QB_LOG_CONF_SIZE, 1024*10);
     qb_log_ctl(QB_LOG_BLACKBOX, QB_LOG_CONF_ENABLED, QB_TRUE);
        // ...
     qb_log(LOG_WARNING, "watch out");
        // ...
     qb_log_fini();
}

Tagging messages.

You can tag messages using the second argument to qb_logt() or by using qb_log_filter_ctl(). This can be used to add feature or sub-system information to the logs.

const char* my_tags_stringify(uint32_t tags) {
        if (qb_bit_is_set(tags, QB_LOG_TAG_LIBQB_MSG_BIT) {
                return "libqb";
        } else if (tags == 3) {
                return "three";
        } else {
                return "MAIN";
        }
}
main() {
        // ...
        qb_log_tags_stringify_fn_set(my_tags_stringify);
        qb_log_format_set(QB_LOG_STDERR, "[%5g] %p %b");
        // ...
        qb_logt(LOG_INFO, 3, "hello");
        qb_logt(LOG_INFO, 0, "hello");
}

The code above will produce:

[libqb] some message
[three] info hello
[MAIN ] info hello

This is similar to perror except it goes into the logging system.

Parameters:

priority this takes syslog priorities.
fmt usual printf style format specifiers
args usual printf style args

Note:

Because qb_perror() adds the system error message and error number onto the end of the given fmt, that information will become extended information if QB_XS is used inside fmt and will not show up in any logs that strip extended information.

This extends qb_log_filter_ctl() by been able to provide a high_priority.

int32_t qb_log_filter_fn_set (qb_log_filter_fn fn)

void qb_log_fini (void)

Logging system finalization function. It releases any shared memory. Stops the logging thread if running. Flushes the last messages to their destinations.

void qb_log_format_set (int32_t t, const char * format)

Set the format specifiers. n FUNCTION NAME f FILENAME l FILELINE p PRIORITY t TIMESTAMP b BUFFER g TAGS N name (passed into qb_log_init) P PID H hostname

any number between % and character specify field length to pad or chop

void qb_log_from_external_source (const char * function, const char * filename, const char * format, uint8_t priority, uint32_t lineno, uint32_t tags, ...)

This function is to import logs from other code (like libraries) that provide a callback with their logs.

Note:

the performance of this will not impress you, as the filtering is done on each log message, not beforehand. So try doing basic pre-filtering.

Parameters:

function originating function name
filename originating filename
format format string
priority this takes syslog priorities.
lineno file line number
tags this is a uint32_t that you can use with qb_log_tags_stringify_fn_set() to 'tag' a log message with a feature or sub-system then you can use '%g' in the format specifer to print it out.

void qb_log_from_external_source_va (const char * function, const char * filename, const char * format, uint8_t priority, uint32_t lineno, uint32_t tags, va_list ap)

void qb_log_init (const char * name, int32_t facility, uint8_t priority)

Init the logging system.

Parameters:

name will be passed into openlog()
facility default for all new targets.
priority a basic filter with this priority will be added.

void qb_log_real_ (struct qb_log_callsite * cs, ...)

Internal function: use qb_log() or qb_logt()

void qb_log_real_va_ (struct qb_log_callsite * cs, va_list ap)

void qb_log_tags_stringify_fn_set (qb_log_tags_stringify_fn fn)

Set the callback to map the 'tags' bit map to a string.

void qb_log_target_format (int32_t target, struct qb_log_callsite * cs, time_t timestamp, const char * formatted_message, char * output_buffer)

format the callsite and timestamp info according to the format set using qb_log_format_set() It is intended to be used from your custom logger function.

void* qb_log_target_user_data_get (int32_t t)

Retrieve the user data set by either qb_log_custom_open or qb_log_target_user_data_set.

int32_t qb_log_target_user_data_set (int32_t t, void * user_data)

Associate user data with this log target.

Note:

only use this with custom targets

int32_t qb_log_thread_priority_set (int32_t policy, int32_t priority)

When using threaded logging set the pthread policy and priority.

Return values:

-errno on error
0 success

int32_t qb_log_thread_start (void)

Start the logging pthread.
