Collect Logs: Apps & Services > Erlang


Papertrail can accept logs from any Erlang (BEAM) app, with or without the lager logging library.

Send log file with remote_syslog2

Configure your Erlang app to log to a file as usual, then transmit the log file to Papertrail using remote_syslog2. This does not require any modifications to the app.

Send events from Erlang app

Alternatively, your app can send a log message directly to Papertrail using the remote syslog protocol.

To do this, add schlagert/syslog to the app and point it at Papertrail. See Add Systems for dest_host and dest_port log destination values. Use either protocol RFC; if in doubt, choose rfc5424.

Since schlagert/syslog is emitting UDP, which is inherently connection-less, the write calls are non-blocking.

Send events with lager library and system syslog

Erlang applications that already use the lager logging library can configure it to also log to syslog. See lager_syslog, which will send logs to a syslog daemon running on the local host (such as rsyslog or syslog-ng). Follow standard setup to configure the syslog daemon to forward to Papertrail.
