Manual Reference Pages - JIFTY::LOGGER (3)
Jifty::Logger -- A master class for Jiftys logging framework
Jifty uses the Log4perl module to log error messages. In Jifty
programs theres two ways you can get something logged:
Firstly, Jifty::Logger captures all standard warnings that Perl
emits. So in addition to everything output from perl via the
warnings pragmas, you can also log messages like so:
warn("The WHAM is overheating!");
This doesnt give you much control however. The second way
allows you to specify the level that you want logging to
Jifty->log->debug("Checking the WHAM");
Jifty->log->info("Potential WHAM problem detected");
Jifty->log->warn("The WHAM is overheating");
Jifty->log->fatal("Someone call Eddie Murphy!");
Unless you specify otherwise in the configuration file, Jifty will
supply a default Log4perl configuration.
The default log configuration that logs all messages to the screen
(i.e. to STDERR, be that directly to the terminal or to the FastCGI
log file.) It will log all messages of equal or higher priority
to the LogLevel configuration option.
You can override the LogLevel configuration option by setting JIFTY_LOG_LEVEL
in your environment.
You can tell Jifty to use an entirely different Logging
configuration by specifying the filename of a standard Log4perl
config file in the LogConfig config option (see Log::Log4perl for
the format of this config file.)
Note that specifying your own config file prevents the LogLevel
config option from having any effect.
You can tell Log4perl to check that file periodically for changes.
This costs you a little in application performance, but allows
you to change the logging level of a running application. You
need to set LogReload to the frequency, in seconds, that the
file should be checked.
(This is implemented with Log4perls init_and_watch functionality)
This class method instantiates a new Jifty::Logger object. This
object deals with logging for the system.
Takes an optional name for this Jiftys logging component - See
Log::Log4perl for some detail about what that is. It sets up a warn
handler which logs warnings to the specified component.
change the Log4Perl action from warn to error|info|etc based
on the content of the warning.
Added because DBD::Pg throws up NOTICE and other messages
as warns, and we really want those to be info (or error, depending
on the code). List based on Postgres documentation
TODO: needs to be smarter than just string matching
returns a valid Log::Log4Perl action, if nothing matches
will return the default of warn since were in a __WARN__ handler
