It occurred to me that a UDP/Syslog LogHandler would be super useful. I’ve used Papertrail in the past to easily capture syslog from a variety of sources, and it would be pretty handy here, especially with a constellation of IoT devices.
I found this psyslog library, but it’s a bit frustrating to use and doesn’t seem to support an OO design. The log functions are all done with
#define and I can’t get it working outside of my main
.ino file (ie. in my classes). So, I was thinking about taking the core UDP/Syslog idea and implementing it as a
LogHandler, potentially a subclass of
StreamLogHandler, if I can figure out how to subclass/implement the
Before I head down that road:
- Has someone already done this? Are there other (non-serial) LogHandler implementations out there for syslog or other (easier than USB-Serial) log formats?
- Assuming the answer to (1) is “No”, is this a good idea?
