Sends your logs to files, sockets, inboxes, databases and various web services

Sockets Handler

This handler allows you to write your logs to sockets using fsockopen or pfsockopen.

Persistent sockets are mainly useful in web environments where you gain some performance not closing/opening the connections between requests.

You can use a unix:// prefix to access unix sockets and udp:// to open UDP sockets instead of the default TCP.

Basic Example


use Monolog\Logger;
use Monolog\Handler\SocketHandler;

// Create the logger
$logger = new Logger('my_logger');

// Create the handler
$handler = new SocketHandler('unix:///var/log/httpd_app_log.socket');

// Now add the handler
$logger->pushHandler($handler, Level::Debug);

// You can now use your logger
$logger->info('My logger is now ready');

In this example, using syslog-ng, you should see the log on the log server:

cweb1 [2012-02-26 00:12:03] my_logger.INFO: My logger is now ready [] []
