This gem is mainly useful for aggregating the logs of all the rails applications in your organization at one place. All the rails app connect to a restful logger where the logs are stored in the database.
Unified-logger assumes that all your rails applications have a unique client_id. Add the following lines to your specific environment configuration file in the end, make sure you have a different client id for each application.
Rails.logger = UnifiedLogger.new(10) # client_id => 10 Rails.logger.log_server = "localhost" # where your logger service is hosted Rails.logger.log_server_port = "3000" # your logger service port Rails.logger.log_server_relative_path = "logers.json" # Relative path to the log listener service
Unified logger hooks onto the Rails default logger (BufferedLogger) and overrides the default logging methods like debug, warn, info, etc. So, hereafter, any logging statements will be posted to the log storage service through a Rest Client.

Make sure to add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
Please try not to mess with the Rakefile, version, or history. If you want to have your own version, or is otherwise necessary, that is fine, but please isolate to its own commit so I can cherry-pick around it.
