MCGraylog Build Status

MCGraylog is a Cocoa C library for logging to a Graylog2 server or any other service that can grok GELF.

MCGraylog is asynchronous and concurrent, so you should not have to worry about blocking while you log; but, there might be a slight delay between the time that something is logged and it shows up in Graylog.

Usage

#import <Foundation/Foundation.h>
#import <MCGraylog.h>

int
main(int argc, char** argv)
{
  // have to initialize some state first
  NSURL* graylog_url = [NSURL URLWithString:@"graylog://localhost/"];
  int init_error = graylog_init(graylog_url, GraylogLogLevelDebug);
  if (init_error)
    return -1;

  // the easiest way to log is using the macros
  GRAYLOG_NOTICE(@"test_app", @"My first test message");

  // macros accept format strings, if you want to give more detailed messages
  GRAYLOG_DEBUG(@"test_app", @"Test app has PID of %d", getpid());

  // alternatively, you can log a dictionary of additional information
  // as long as that dictionary can be serialized to JSON
  graylog_log(GraylogLogLevelEmergency,
              @"test_app",
              @"extra information",
              @{
                @"userInfo": @{ @"username": @"ferrous" }
                });

  // when you are done with MCGraylog, you can optionally shut it down
  graylog_deinit();
}

The full API is documented in MCGraylog.h. For testing, it may be easier to setup Logstash, which can understand GELF, instead of setting up Graylog for testing.

We use Logstash to test MCGraylog, so you can reference our test configuration (and files) to get started more quickly.
