Coaly

A Rust library for logging and tracing. There are various libraries for that purpose around, but especially in situations where direct debugging isn't possible or spurious errors must be tracked down, Coaly can be worth a try due to some unique features:

  • event based output mode for log and trace messages. Output mode means filtering of messages according to their associated level (e.g. error or warning). Usually, the output mode is defined once upon application start and on a per-module basis. In Coaly, the default output mode is set upon application start and may change whenever configurable events like a certain function call or structure instantiation occur.
  • configurable formatting of log and trace messages
  • support for output resource types file, memory mapped file, console and network
  • file based resources may be level-, thread-, process- or application speficic
  • built-in rollover of file resources based either on file size or time
