logger is the main logging service on Fuchsia. It provides the
fuchsia.logger.LogSink service which components use to log messages, and the
fuchsia.logger.Log service which
log_listener uses to read back logs. It has a 4 MB rotating buffer in which all logs are stored. It also reads the kernel log and merges log messages from it into its buffer.
This project is included in the
core build product.
The diagnostics archivist is started on-demand by clients connecting to the
LogSink protocol. In practice this means an instance is usually running already.
