Syslog is an application available under Linux/Unix operation systems for logging different types of events that occur in the systems.

The syslog protocol is a standard that defines how to communicate with syslog server facilities. A syslog server may be running on the same machine or in different machines in the local network.

This class provides a client implementation of the syslog protocol. It simplifies the logging of events that occur on the PHP application level.
