A chef cookbook for socklog-run, an ubuntu and debian package which replaces the system logger with socklog.

Requirements

Requires runit to be installed.

Attributes

Based on Kevin Berry's socklog cookbook

Add the socklog-run recipe to a run_list, then check out the symlinks in /var/log/. The "real" logs will be in /var/log/socklog/*/, take a look there, too.
