https://www.graylog.org/

Install

Install graylog server. For easy setup, you can use docker:

$ docker pull graylog2/allinone
$ docker run -t -p 9000:9000 -p 12201:12201 graylog2/allinone

Load the library:

(ql:quickload :graylog)

Usage

(graylog:connect-graylog-toplevel)
(graylog:graylog "hello world")

Log5

The library comes with a Log5 sender so you can simply use Log5 to log to Graylog

(ql:quickload :graylog-log5)

(log5:defcategory app)

(log5:start-sender 'app
        (graylog/log5:graylog-sender)
        :category-spec '(app log5:info+)
        :output-spec '(log5:time log5:category log5:message))

(log5:log-for app "Hello from log5")
