Macro

os_log

Sends a default-level message to the logging system.

Declaration

#define os_log(log, format, ...)

The OS_LOG_DEFAULT constant or a custom log object previously created by the os_log_create function.

Discussion

Call this function to capture information about things that might result a failure. Default-level messages sent by this function are initially stored in memory. Without a configuration change, they are moved to the data store as memory buffers fill. They remain there until the storage quota is exceeded, at which point, the oldest messages are purged.

Calling this function is equivalent to calling the os_log_with_type function and specifying a log type of OS_LOG_TYPE_DEFAULT. Note that lengthy log messages may be truncated when stored by the logging system.
