[Standards] Event Logging over XMPP

Hello Mike

I was looking at Logstash yesterday but couldn't find any documentation on the format they used. So I assumed it was simple Syslog formatted strings in message stanzas.

Do you know where I can find out more about the actual stanzas accepted by and sent by Logstash?

Best regards,
Peter Waher

I could see this happening by wrapping the "protocol" that Logstash uses.
