(Deprecated) Scalable Syslog
The scalable syslog is a consumer of Loggregator which transports application logs to syslog drains. It writes messages according to RFC 5424 and RFC 6587. Here is an example of how it writes messages:
+ Protocol Version | | + Timestamp + org_name.space_name.app_name + ProcessID (Source) | | | | v v v v <14>1 2017-10-05T15:00:55.432180389Z cf-lamb.development.dripspinner 3e0b1150-14b8-4a20-a1c5-d9e296f198ae [APP/PROC/WEB] - - msg 1 LogSpinner Log Message ^ ^ ^ | | | + Priority + AppID + Log Message
If you see a decimal prefix followed by a space in your message, this is the length prefixed to the message. This is used to frame syslog messages when transmitting over a streaming protocol.
