NAME

       function::log - Send a line to the common trace buffer

SYNOPSIS

           log(msg:string)

ARGUMENTS

       msg
           The formatted message string

DESCRIPTION

       This function logs data. log sends the message immediately to staprun and to the bulk
       transport (relayfs) if it is being used. If the last character given is not a newline,
       then one is added. This function is not as efficient as printf and should be used only for
       urgent messages.
