A Rust logger compatible with Elastic Common Schema (ECS) Logging.

Features

  • Configurable via the RUST_LOG environment variable.
    • Uses env_logger under the hood.
    • By default, all logging is disabled except for the error level.
  • By default logs are written to stderr.

Installation

Add the following to your Cargo.toml file:

[dependencies]
log = "0.4"
ecs-logger = "1"

Documentation

Available at docs.rs

Example

In the following examples we assume the binary is ./example.

Basic logging

use log::{debug, error};

ecs_logger::init();

debug!(
    "this is a debug {}, which is NOT printed by default",
    "message"
);
error!("this is printed by default");
$ ./example
{"@timestamp":"2021-11-26T15:25:22.321002600Z","log.level":"ERROR","message":"this is printed by default","ecs.version":"1.12.1","log.origin":{"file":{"line":13,"name":"example.rs"},"rust":{"target":"example::tests","module_path":"example::tests","file_path":"tests/example.rs"}}}
$ RUST_LOG=debug ./example
{"@timestamp":"2021-11-26T15:26:13.524069Z","log.level":"DEBUG","message":"this is a debug message, which is NOT printed by default","ecs.version":"1.12.1","log.origin":{"file":{"line":9,"name":"example.rs"},"rust":{"target":"example::tests","module_path":"example::tests","file_path":"tests/example.rs"}}}
{"@timestamp":"2021-11-26T15:26:13.524193100Z","log.level":"ERROR","message":"this is printed by default","ecs.version":"1.12.1","log.origin":{"file":{"line":13,"name":"example.rs"},"rust":{"target":"example::tests","module_path":"example::tests","file_path":"tests/example.rs"}}}

More filtering config examples are available at env_logger’s documentation.

Custom logging

You need to add env_logger to your Cargo.toml for the following examples.

[dependencies]
log = "0.4"
env_logger = "0.9"
ecs-logger = "1"

Write to stdout

use log::info;

// Initialize custom logger
env_logger::builder()
    .format(ecs_logger::format) // Configure ECS logger
    .target(env_logger::Target::Stdout) // Write to stdout
    .init();

info!("Hello {}!", "world");

Configure log filters

use log::info;

// Initialize custom logger
env_logger::builder()
    .parse_filters("info,my_app=debug") // Set filters
    .format(ecs_logger::format) // Configure ECS logger
    .init();

info!("Hello {}!", "world");
