The Logger System described in this article is a general purpose set of component interfaces for logging data in a distributed, heterogeneous computing environment. Fundamentally, it serves as an intermediary between log artifact producers and log artifact consumers. It is designed to virtualize existing logging systems including the z/OS® System Logger, Microsoft Windows® event logging, and the UNIX® syslog facility. The Logger System is outlined using the conventions defined in the recently released Web Services Resource Framework (WSRF) and provides an example of how this framework might be used to define a meta-OS (operating system) for grid computing.
