Detailed Description

This class provides a way to dynamically configure the ACE logging mechanism at run time as well as enable the mechanisms for limiting log file size and log file backup/rotation capability.

Depending upon when this service is invoked and with what flags, the output of other network services can be controlled. The output can be streamed to stderr, to a file, to a logging daemon, or it can be set to be "silent". If logging records are output to a file, the file can be set to a maximum size and repeatedly split into new files. The log file size can be limited at any logging point (i.e., application, client logging daemon, or server logging daemon) by specifying the -i

sample_interval_in_secsand -m
max_size_in_KBoptions for the Logging_Strategy class in a svc.conf file.

By default, two logfiles are generated. It's possible, however, to generate as many logfiles as necessary to store all the information. To achieve this, it is only necessary to indicate the maximum size of the logfiles via the -m option and the process will generate automatically the logfiles. You can control the total number of logfiles created via the -n option.

By using the -o option we can also choose the mode of organization of the files, e.g., the first one is the normal used in Unix systems (when cron rotates the logs it keeps the lowest number the most recent one), the second is for increasing speed (we only create a new log file, and don't rotate the others (fewer accesses to disk)).

By default, the ACE_Logging_Strategy uses the singleton reactor, i.e., what's returned by ACE_Reactor::instance(). If you want to set the reactor used by ACE_Logging_Strategy to something other than the singleton reactor you'll need to get a pointer to the ACE_Logging_Strategy instance and do this

ACE_Reactor my_reactor; ACE_Logging_Strategy *logging_strategy = ...... // Get instance.

logging_strategy->reactor (&my_reactor);

and then logging_strategy will use your reactor. If you're dynamically linking the ACE_Logging_Strategy then you can use the ACE_Dynamic_Service template to get a pointer to the ACE_Logging_Strategy.

Member Function Documentation

int ACE_Logging_Strategy::fini ( void  ) [virtual]

Dynamic linking termination hook.

Reimplemented from ACE_Shared_Object.

int ACE_Logging_Strategy::handle_close ( ACE_HANDLE  ,
) [virtual]

This function helps to cancel timer events for this logging strategy in reactor during shutdown.

Reimplemented from ACE_Event_Handler.

int ACE_Logging_Strategy::handle_timeout ( const ACE_Time_Value tv,
const void *  arg 
) [virtual]

Timeout handler which tests logfile size. If the current logfile size exceeds max_size_, the current logfile is closed, saved to logfile.old, and a new logfile is reopened.

Reimplemented from ACE_Event_Handler.

int ACE_Logging_Strategy::init ( int  argc,
ACE_TCHAR argv[] 
) [virtual]

Dynamic linking initialization hook.

Reimplemented from ACE_Shared_Object.

void ACE_Logging_Strategy::log_msg ( ACE_Log_Msg log_msg)
int ACE_Logging_Strategy::parse_args ( int  argc,
ACE_TCHAR argv[] 

Parse arguments provided in svc.conf file.

  • '-f' Pass in the flags (such as OSTREAM, STDERR, LOGGER, VERBOSE, SILENT, VERBOSE_LITE) used to control logging.
  • '-i' The interval (in seconds) at which the logfile size is sampled (default is 0, i.e., do not sample by default).
  • '-k' Set the logging key.
  • '-m' Maximum logfile size in Kbytes.
  • '-n' Set the program name for the n format specifier.
  • '-N' The maximum number of logfiles that we want created.
  • '-o' Specifies that we want the no standard logfiles ordering (fastest processing in handle_timeout()). Default is not to order logfiles.
  • '-p' Pass in the process-wide priorities to either enable (e.g., DEBUG, INFO, WARNING, NOTICE, ERROR, CRITICAL, ALERT, EMERGENCY) or to disable (e.g., ~DEBUG, ~INFO, ~WARNING, ~NOTICE, ~ERROR, ~CRITICAL, ~ALERT, ~EMERGENCY).
  • '-s' Ensure that the OSTREAM flag is set and log to the filename.
  • '-t' Pass in the thread-wide priorities to either enable (e.g., DEBUG, INFO, WARNING, NOTICE, ERROR, CRITICAL, ALERT, EMERGENCY) or to disable (e.g., ~DEBUG, ~INFO, ~WARNING, ~NOTICE, ~ERROR, ~CRITICAL, ~ALERT, ~EMERGENCY).
  • '-w' Cause the logfile to be wiped out, both on startup and on reconfiguration.
void ACE_Logging_Strategy::priorities ( ACE_TCHAR priority_string,
ACE_Log_Msg::MASK_TYPE  mask 
) [protected]

Tokenize to set priorities (either process or thread one).

void ACE_Logging_Strategy::reactor ( ACE_Reactor r) [virtual]

Reactor accessors. If reactor changes then we need remove this event handler from previous reactor and scheduler for timer events in a new one.

Reimplemented from ACE_Event_Handler.

ACE_Reactor * ACE_Logging_Strategy::reactor ( void  ) const [virtual]

Get the event demultiplexors.

Reimplemented from ACE_Event_Handler.

void ACE_Logging_Strategy::tokenize ( ACE_TCHAR flag_string) [protected]

Tokenize to set all the flags.

Member Data Documentation

This tells us in what file we last wrote. It will be increased to enable multiple log files

File name we're logging to.

If true we have a maximum number of log files we can write. Default value is false, i.e., no maximum number.

u_long ACE_Logging_Strategy::flags_ [protected]

Flags we keep track of.

u_long ACE_Logging_Strategy::interval_ [protected]

If non-zero, sampling interval (in secs) at which maximum logfile size is checked, otherwise logfile size can grow indefinitely. Default value is 0.

ACE_Log_Msg instance to work with.

Logger key for distributed logging.

Tells us what is the maximum log file to write. We will write max_file_number_ + 1 files (includes the current log file). Default value is 1, i.e., 2 files by default.

u_long ACE_Logging_Strategy::max_size_ [protected]

Maximum logfile size (in KB). Default value is ACE_DEFAULT_MAX_LOGFILE_SIZE.

If true we order the files as we rotate them. Default value is false, i.e., we do not rotate files by default.

Process-wide priority mask set by priorities.

Program name to be used for n format specifier.

Current thread's priority mask set by priorities.

If true then wipeout the logfile, otherwise append to it. Default value is false.
