InspIRCd v4 is still early in development!

If you use this branch you may experience crashes, weird behaviour, and unannounced breaking changes.

You probably want to use InspIRCd v3 instead.

This module depends on a UNIX-specific system library and must be manually enabled at compile time.

If you are running on a UNIX system you can enable this module using the following command:

./configure --enable-extras log_syslog


This module provides the ability to log to syslog.


To load this module use the following <module> tag:

<module name="log_syslog">


This module extends the core <log> tags with the following fields:

Name Type Default Value Description
method Text None Required! This MUST be set to stderr to use JSON logging.
