       tlog-rec.conf - tlog-rec configuration file


       tlog-rec.conf  is  a JSON-format configuration file for tlog-rec program.  Contrary to the
       strict JSON specification, both C and C++ style comments are allowed in the file.

       The file must contain a single JSON object with the objects and  fields  described  below.
       Almost  all  of  them  are  optional  and  assume a default value.  However, those that do
       require a value can still be omitted and specified to  tlog-rec  in  other  ways:  through
       environment variables or command line.


   Root object
       latency (integer)
              The  number of seconds to cache captured data for before logging.  The encoded data
              which does not reach payload size stays in memory and  is  not  logged  until  this
              number of seconds elapses.

              Minimum: 1
              Default: 10

       payload (integer)
              The  maximum  encoded  data  (payload) size per message, bytes.  As soon as payload
              exceeds this number of bytes, it is formatted into a message and logged.

              Minimum: 32
              Default: 2048

       log (object)
              Logged data set object, see below.

       limit (object)
              Logging limit object, see below.

       file (object)
              File writer object, see below.

       syslog (object)
              Syslog writer object, see below.

       journal (object)
              Journal writer object, see below.

       writer (string)
              The type of "log writer" to use for logging. The  writer  needs  to  be  configured
              using its dedicated parameters.

              One of: "journal", "syslog", "file"
              Default: "file"

   log - Logged data set object
       input (boolean)
              If true, user input is logged.

              Default: false

       output (boolean)
              If true, terminal output is logged.

              Default: true

       window (boolean)
              If true, terminal window size changes are logged.

              Default: true

   limit - Logging limit object
       rate (integer)
              The maximum rate messages could be logged at, bytes/sec.

              Minimum: 0
              Default: 16384

       burst (integer)
              The  number  of bytes by which logged messages are allowed to exceed the rate limit
              momentarily, i.e. "burstiness".

              Minimum: 0
              Default: 32768

       action (string)
              The logging limit action.  If set to "pass" no logging limits will be applied.   If
              set  to  "delay",  logging will be throttled.  If set to "drop", messages exceeding
              limits will be dropped.

              One of: "pass", "delay", "drop"
              Default: "pass"

   file - File writer object
       path (string)
              The "file" writer log file path.

              No default.

   syslog - Syslog writer object
       facility (string)
              The syslog facility "syslog" writer should use for messages.

              One of: "auth", "authpriv", "cron", "daemon", "ftp",  "kern",  "local0",  "local1",
              "local2",  "local3", "local4", "local5", "local6", "local7", "lpr", "mail", "news",
              "syslog", "user", "uucp"
              Default: "authpriv"

       priority (string)
              The syslog priority "syslog" writer should use for messages.

              One of: "emerg", "alert", "crit", "err", "warning", "notice", "info", "debug"
              Default: "info"

   journal - Journal writer object
       priority (string)
              The syslog-style priority "journal" writer should use for messages.

              One of: "emerg", "alert", "crit", "err", "warning", "notice", "info", "debug"
              Default: "info"

       augment (boolean)
              If true, the "journal" writer copies the following JSON fields to  Journal  fields:
              user -> TLOG_USER, session -> TLOG_SESSION, rec -> TLOG_REC, and id -> TLOG_ID.

              Default: true


       A configuration specifying only a reduced latency:

                  "latency": 3

       A configuration enabling logging user input:

                  "log": {
                      "input": true

       A configuration specifying logging to a file:

                  "writer": "file"
                  "file" : {
                      "path": "/var/log/tlog-rec.log"
