liblog represents an interface to the volatile Android Logging system
for NDK (Native) applications and libraries. Interfaces for either
writing or reading logs. The log buffers are divided up in Main, Sys
tem, Radio and Events sub-logs.
The logging interfaces are a series of macros, all of which can be
overridden individually in order to control the verbosity of the appli
cation or library. [ASR]LOG[VDIWE] calls are used to log to BAsic,
System or Radio sub-logs in either the Verbose, Debug, Info, Warning or
Error priorities. [ASR]LOG[VDIWE]_IF calls are used to perform thus
based on a condition being true. IF_ALOG[VDIWE] calls are true if the
current LOG_TAG is enabled at the specified priority. LOG_ALWAYS_FATAL
is used to ALOG a message, then kill the process. LOG_FATAL call is a
variant of LOG_ALWAYS_FATAL, only enabled in engineering, and not
release builds. ALOG_ASSERT is used to ALOG a message if the condition
is false; the condition is part of the logged message.
LOG_EVENT_(INT|LONG) is used to drop binary content into the Events
The log reading interfaces permit opening the logs either singly or
multiply, retrieving a log entry at a time in time sorted order,
optionally limited to a specific pid and tail of the log(s) and finally
a call closing the logs. A single log can be opened with android_log
ger_list_open; or multiple logs can be opened with android_log
ger_list_alloc, calling in turn the android_logger_open for each log
id. Each entry can be retrieved with android_logger_list_read. The
log(s) can be closed with android_logger_list_free. The logs should be
opened with an O_RDONLY mode. O_NDELAY mode will report when the log
reading is done with an EAGAIN error return code, otherwise the
android_logger_list_read call will block for new entries.
The value returned by android_logger_open can be used as a parameter to
the android_logger_clear function to empty the sub-log. It is recom
mended to only open log O_WRONLY.
The value returned by android_logger_open can be used as a parameter to
the android_logger_get_log_(size|readable_size|version) to retrieve the
sub-log maximum size, readable size and log buffer format protocol ver
sion respectively. android_logger_get_id returns the id that was used
when opening the sub-log. It is recommended to open the log O_RDONLY
in these cases.
