Send messages to a syslog server.
# This way of loading a module prevents Python from looking in the
# current directory. (We need to avoid it due to the syslog module
# name collision.)
syslog = imp.load_module('syslog', *imp.find_module('syslog'))
Python's built in syslog module does not support networking, so
this is the alternative.
The source argument specifies the message source that is
documented on the receiving server. It defaults to "scriptname[pid]",
where "scriptname" is sys.argv, and pid is the current process id.
The priority and facility arguments are equivalent to those of
Python's built in syslog module.
:type source: str
:param source: The source address.
:type host: str
:param host: The IP address or hostname of the receiving server.
:type port: str
:param port: The TCP port number of the receiving server.
:type priority: int
:param priority: The message priority.
:type facility: int
:param facility: The message facility.
if not source:
source = '%s[%s]' + (sys.argv, os.getpid())
data = '<%d>%s: %s' % (priority + facility, source, message)
sock = socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_DGRAM)
sock.sendto(data, (host, port))
