Log::Handler::Output::DBI - Log messages to a database. SYNOPSIS
use Log::Handler::Output::DBI; my $db = Log::Handler::Output::DBI->new( # database source database => "database", driver => "mysql", host => "", port => 3306, # or with "dbname" instead of "database" dbname => "database", driver => "Pg", host => "", port => 5432, # or with data_source data_source => "dbi:mysql:database=database;host=;port=3306", # Username and password user => "user", password => "password", # debugging debug => 1, # table, columns and values (as string) table => "messages", columns => "level ctime cdate pid hostname progname message", values => "%level %time %date %pid %hostname %progname %message", # table, columns and values (as array reference) table => "messages", columns => [ qw/level ctime cdate pid hostname progname message/ ], values => [ qw/%level %time %date %pid %hostname %progname %message/ ], # table, columns and values (your own statement) statement => "insert into messages (level,ctime,cdate,pid,hostname,progname,message) values (?,?,?,?,?,?,?)", values => [ qw/%level %time %date %pid %hostname %progname %message/ ], # if you like persistent connections and want to re-connect persistent => 1, ); my %message = ( level => "ERROR", time => "10:12:13", date => "1999-12-12", pid => $$, hostname => "localhost", progname => $0, message => "an error here" ); $db->log(\%message); DESCRIPTION
With this output you can insert messages into a database table. METHODS
new() Call "new()" to create a new Log::Handler::Output::DBI object. The following options are possible: data_source Set the dsn (data source name). You can use this parameter instead of "database", "driver", "host" and "port". database or dbname Pass the database name. driver Pass the database driver. host Pass the hostname where the database is running. port Pass the port where the database is listened. user Pass the database user for the connect. password Pass the users password. table and columns With this options you can pass the table name for the insert and the columns. You can pass the columns as string or as array. Example: # the table name table => "messages", # columns as string columns => "level, ctime, cdate, pid, hostname, progname, message", # columns as array columns => [ qw/level ctime cdate pid hostname progname message/ ], The statement would created as follows insert into message (level, ctime, cdate, pid, hostname, progname, mtime, message) values (?,?,?,?,?,?,?) statement With this option you can pass your own statement if you don't want to you the options "table" and "columns". statement => "insert into message (level, ctime, cdate, pid, hostname, progname, mtime, message)" ." values (?,?,?,?,?,?,?)" values With this option you have to set the values for the insert. values => "%level, %time, %date, %pid, %hostname, %progname, %message", # or values => [ qw/%level %time %date %pid %hostname %progname %message/ ], The placeholders are identical with the pattern names that you have to pass with the option "message_pattern" from Log::Handler. %L level %T time %D date %P pid %H hostname %N newline %C caller %p package %f filename %l line %s subroutine %S progname %r runtime %t mtime %m message Take a look to the documentation of Log::Handler for all possible patterns. persistent With this option you can enable or disable a persistent database connection and re-connect if the connection was lost. This option is set to 1 on default. dbi_params This option is useful if you want to pass arguments to DBI. The default is set to { PrintError => 0, AutoCommit => 1 } "PrintError" is deactivated because this would print error messages as warnings to STDERR. You can pass your own arguments - and overwrite it - with dbi_params => { PrintError => 1, AutoCommit => 0 } debug With this option it's possible to enable debugging. The information can be intercepted with $SIG{__WARN__}. log() Log a message to the database. my $db = Log::Handler::Output::DBI->new( database => "database", driver => "mysql", user => "user", password => "password", host => "", port => 3306, table => "messages", columns => [ qw/level ctime message/ ], values => [ qw/%level %time %message/ ], persistent => 1, ); $db->log( message => "your message", level => "INFO", time => "2008-10-10 10:12:23", ); Or you can connect to the database yourself. You should notice that if the database connection lost then the logger can't re-connect to the database and would return an error. Use "dbi_handle" at your own risk. my $dbh = DBI->connect(...); my $db = Log::Handler::Output::DBI->new( dbi_handle => $dbh, table => "messages", columns => [ qw/level ctime message/ ], values => [ qw/%level %time %message/ ], ); connect() Connect to the database. disconnect() Disconnect from the database. validate() Validate a configuration. reload() Reload with a new configuration. errstr() This function returns the last error message.
