James Park commented on LOG4J2-969:
-----------------------------------

In reference to the BSD format (RFC3164) mentioned above, is the TAG field 
being logged by log4j2? 
i.e. If my xml uses <Syslog name="bsd" host="sysloghost" port="514" 
protocol="UDP"/>
and my slf4j logger writes "app msg1 msg2 msg3" using log4j2, I only see "msg1 
msg2 msg3" in syslog?

>             Project: Log4j 2
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Appenders, Layouts
>    Affects Versions: 2.2
>            Reporter: Paul D Johe
>              Labels: syslog, syslogappender
>
> There are quite a lot of attributes to the syslogappender that could have 
> been simply included as:
> {code}
> @PluginElement("layout") Layout<? extends Serializable> layout,
> {code}
> This is much more flexible (for example, extension of existing syslog 
> layouts) and the field 'format' becomes superfluous, as it is implied by the 
> layout chosen (normally SyslogLayout or Rfc5424Layout will be chosen).
> Furthermore, it becomes much clearer which attributes are for the RFC5424 
> format and which are for the BSD format.
> Or at least add the possibility for a Layout element, which if does not exist 
> will use the existing code.
