A GLib look at structured logging

Philip Withnall

Structured logging is a handy feature of modern log systems, like journald. GLib is growing functionality to allow applications to export log messages in structured form, which allows developers and sysadmins to more easily search and sort log messages to find what they're looking for.

This talk will introduce the new APIs and give an overview of how applications and libraries should log in the new world order.
