Introduction

This is a very basic log4j appender which stores records in riak. The aim of this project is to build a high performance, low maintenance logger which can be used for real time system monitoring.

This is not a replacement for appending to a log file, this will always have a place in recording historical events or errors. I am attempting to overcome the sometimes daunting task of using grep/sed/awk to mine information from logs.

Goals

At the moment this library stores log events in riak encoded as JSON. Each record includes a sequence number to enable simple analysis of data loss.

This library is roughly feature complete for my first test run. That said I am keen to see some data before doing another round of hacking. The features I will be working on next are:

  • HTTPS support
  • basic auth support
  • proxy support

Acknowledgments

This library depends on Netty which is a NIO client server framework which enables quick and easy development of network applications such as protocol servers and clients.

References

When looking for some baseline values for the http connection re-use I chose the following values (see Wikipedia - HTTP persistent connection).

  • Max Connections per protocol/host/port is 5
  • Connection Idle timeout is 115 seconds
