11.4.7. Async Log Handler Properties

Table 11.11. Async Log Handler Properties

Property Type Description
level string
The maximum level of log message the log handler records.
name string
The unique identifier for this log handler.
Queue-length integer
Maximum number of log messages that will be held by this handler while waiting for sub-handlers to respond.
overflow-action string
How this handler responds when its queue length is exceeded. This can be set to BLOCK or DISCARD. BLOCK makes the logging application wait until there is available space in the queue. This is the same behaviour as an non-async log handler. DISCARD allows the logging application to continue but the log message is deleted.
subhandlers list of strings
This is the list of log handlers to which this async handler passes its log messages.
