Announce: syslog_handler


#1

Nothing big, but I sent this info to the contact email address
for the Foodfight folks, but it keeps not appearing in the
"What’s Cookin" newsletter.

Mentioning it here instead, in case anyone has a need for it.

syslog_handler – https://github.com/jblaine/syslog_handler

Report and Error handler for Opscode Chef to log the basic essential
information.

Example output from an example syslog log file:

| Aug 2 17:04:05 web33-x9 chef[13072]: status=success total_resources=171 updated_resources=6 elapsed_time=117.646907
|

Based roughly on the |graphite_handler| code from Ian Meyer, Peter
Donald, et al.


#2

Added to the list of community report handlers! (Building new file now …)
