But what about this ? https://forum.dlang.org/thread/eryphpbznrrovjvxj...@forum.dlang.org
That arose out of a project that we are working on where it is convenient to be able to integrate with std.experimental.logger. Internal work that has been opensourced, rather than written with the primary target of open source, and if we had more time I would have suggested basing off Adil's work. As it is, it was just a write from scratch by Ilya. I thank Adil for making me aware of Graylog and Gelf format, as I wouldn't have known about it otherwise.
Main benefit for us is to be able to reap the benefits of std.experimental.logger - very easy to switch logging source, and I think runtime cost of trace statements should be zero if turned off. Little fiddly state machines with a few things that need to be ironed out that only show up now and then, so writeflns and debugging in an IDE don't cut it.
Graylog is a bit of a monster that uses Mongo, elasticsearch and who knows what else - for some things might be easier to use the Gelf format with a D back end. But it's a very nice way to think about the problem.
