[Standards] Event Logging over XMPP

Hello Steffen

Thanks for the response.

I've seen various solutions where they send events as clear text messages. It's easy to setup, but more difficult if you want to analyze and monitor the flow of events automatically in a network, especially if you invite products from different manufacturers. To achieve this, one would have to tag each message with various attributes as well.

Best regards,
Peter Waher

No haven't seen such a XEP, but I've implemented something like it to be able to remote debug set-top boxes etc. I've just did a dumb implementation based on message stanzas, where the client can send the log to diff. implementations like console, remote (xmpp), file etc. with different levels.

So I am interested as well. :-)
