Monolog for custom logging

Submitted by subdesign - 2 years ago

In this example I use Monolog for logging user activity in my cms admin. Usage: add the following line to the controller's constructor: UserLog::write();

<?php namespace Acme\Services\Logger;

use Monolog\Logger;
use Monolog\Handler\RotatingFileHandler;
use Monolog\Processor\WebProcessor;
use Monolog\Processor\MemoryUsageProcessor;
use Monolog\Formatter\LineFormatter;
use Request;
use Sentry;
use Config;

/**
 * UserLog
 *
 * Custom monolog logger for CMS user activity logging
 *
 * @author     Barna Szalai <sz.b@devartpro.com>
 */ 
class UserLog {

    /**
	 * write 
	 * @return void
	 */
	public function write()
	{
		// if feature is enabled..
		if (Config::get('app.userlog')) 
		{
			// logger instance
			$log = new Logger('userlog');
			// handler init, making days separated logs
			$handler = new RotatingFileHandler(storage_path().'/logs/useractivity.log', 0, Logger::INFO);		
			// formatter, ordering log rows
			$handler->setFormatter(new LineFormatter("[%datetime%] %channel%.%level_name%: %message% %extra% %context%\n"));
			// add handler to the logger
			$log->pushHandler($handler);
			// processor, adding URI, IP address etc. to the log
			$log->pushProcessor(new WebProcessor);
			// processor, memory usage
			$log->pushProcessor(new MemoryUsageProcessor);
			// custom: I add user id and permission group (by Sentry) to log
			$user = Sentry::getUser();
			$group = $user->getGroups();
			$log->addInfo('USER ID: '.$user->id.' | USER GROUP: '.$group[0]->name.' |');		
		}
	}
}
