== DESCRIPTION:

Lwes based ruby logger for real-time logging.

== FEATURES:

* Send logging udp events with lwes.

* Optionally also log to a local file.

== SYNOPSIS:

  require 'lwes_logger'

  logger = LwesLogger.new '127.0.0.1',
            :log_device => "optional_backup_logfile.logs"

  logger.namespace = "MyApp::Logs"

  logger.meta_event.merge! :app_name => "myapp",
                           :user     => `whoami`

  logger.debug "This is a debug log event"
  logger.error "OH NOES!"

Will produce logs in the optional_backup_logfile.logs file and will
generate the following Lwes events:

  System::Startup[3]
  {
    SenderPort = 64885;
    ReceiptTime = 1286495516997;
    SenderIP = 127.0.0.1;
  }
  MyApp::Logs::Full[12]
  {
    SenderPort = 64885;
    message = This is a debug log event;
    progname = This is a debug log event;
    event_id = MyApp::Logs::Debug-3bd9c9d2-d272-11df-b9a6-00254bfffeb1;
    app_name = myapp;
    user = system_user;
    ReceiptTime = 1286495519612;
    SenderIP = 127.0.0.1;
    timestamp = Oct 07 16:51:59;
    hostname = example.com;
    severity = DEBUG;
    pid = 70884;
  }
  MyApp::Logs::Debug[12]
  {
    SenderPort = 64885;
    message = This is a debug log event;
    progname = This is a debug log event;
    event_id = MyApp::Logs::Debug-3bd9c9d2-d272-11df-b9a6-00254bfffeb1;
    app_name = myapp;
    user = system_user;
    ReceiptTime = 1286495519612;
    SenderIP = 127.0.0.1;
    timestamp = Oct 07 16:51:59;
    hostname = example.com;
    severity = DEBUG;
    pid = 70884;
  }
  MyApp::Logs::Full[12]
  {
    SenderPort = 64885;
    message = OH NOES!;
    progname = OH NOES!;
    event_id = MyApp::Logs::Error-3a38b5f6-d273-11df-b9a6-00254bfffeb1;
    app_name = myapp;
    user = system_user;
    ReceiptTime = 1286495519612;
    SenderIP = 127.0.0.1;
    timestamp = Oct 07 16:51:59;
    hostname = example.com;
    severity = ERROR;
    pid = 70884;
  }
  MyApp::Logs::Error[12]
  {
    SenderPort = 64885;
    message = OH NOES!;
    progname = OH NOES!;
    event_id = MyApp::Logs::Error-3a38b5f6-d273-11df-b9a6-00254bfffeb1;
    app_name = myapp;
    user = system_user;
    ReceiptTime = 1286495519612;
    SenderIP = 127.0.0.1;
    timestamp = Oct 07 16:51:59;
    hostname = example.com;
    severity = ERROR;
    pid = 70884;
  }
  System::Shutdown[7]
  {
    freq = 145;
    SenderPort = 64885;
    seq = 0;
    ReceiptTime = 1286495661890;
    total = 0;
    SenderIP = 127.0.0.1;
    count = 0;
  }

Notice that for convenience, logs events are broadcast to both the Full and
Severity (e.g. Debug) events. You can change the name of the full logs by
setting the full_logs_event attribute to a string, or turn full logs off
completely by setting it to false:

  logger.full_logs_event = "OtherFullLogs"
  logger.full_logs_event = false

Alternatively, if you'd rather only have full logs you can assign the
full_logs_only attribute:

  logger.full_logs_only = true
