Documentation forPapertrail



The Go Programming Language or golang can log to Papertrail via three methods.

Send log file with remote_syslog2

Log to a text log file(s), then transmit the log file to Papertrail using remote_syslog2.

Send events from the Go app

Have the Go app transmit logs to Papertrail with the standard syslog package or a fork like srslog.

Call syslog.Dial with the hostname and port provided by Papertrail. For example:

import "log/syslog"
w, err := syslog.Dial("udp", "", LOG_EMERG | LOG_KERN, "myapp")
if err != nil {
    log.Fatal("failed to dial syslog")
w.Info("Any log message")
w.Err("Another log message")

Send events with the system syslog

Use the Go syslog package to send logs to a local syslog daemon (example). Have the local syslog daemon transmit the logs to Papertrail using Papertrail’s Unix/Linux syslog instructions.
