Detailed Description

Log handler that supports sending log events to a syslog server using RFC 3164 formatted UDP packets.

Monolog's SyslogUdpHandler creates a partial RFC 5424 header (PRI and VERSION) and relies on the associated formatter to complete the header and message payload. This makes using it with a fixed format formatter like \Monolog\Formatter\LogstashFormatter impossible. Additionally, the direct syslog input for Logstash only handles RFC 3164 syslog packets.

This Handler should work with any Formatter. The formatted message will be prepended with an RFC 3164 message header and a partial message body. The resulting packet will looks something like:


This format works as input to rsyslog and can also be processed by the default Logstash syslog input handler.
