Design-Ireland.net: Logging Messages to Scribe from PHP

On the Design-Ireland.net site, there's a recent tutorial showing you how to log messages to Scribe from PHP. Scribe is Facebook's open sourced server for aggregating log data streamed in from multiple places.

n a previous tutorial, I showed you how to install Facebook Scribe on a Linux server. In this tutorial we will continue to look at Scribe, but this time from the client perspective. Note that this tutorial assumes that you already have your Scribe and Thrift environment set up as outlined in the previous tutorial. You can log messages to Scribe from many different languages. In this tutorial I will show you how to use Thrift to generate a PHP client, and then use that client from your own PHP project to log messages.

The tutorial walks you through setting up Thrift to work with your PHP installation and gives an example script to send your first messages over to the Scribe server. They also show how you can go into the Scribe instance's folders and look for the log information you just inserted.
