A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.

 	Title		: Syslog Extension for Cloud Using Syslog Structured Data

 	Author(s)	: G. Golovinsky, S. Johnston, Z. Fox
 	Filename	: draft-cloud-log-00.txt
 	Pages		: 9
 	Date		: 2010-10-15

This document provides an open and extensible log format to be used
    by any cloud entity or cloud application to log and trace activities
    that occur in the cloud.  It is equally applicable for cloud
    infrastructure (IaaS), platform (PaaS), and application (SaaS)
    services.  CloudLog is defferent in content, but not in nature from
    the traditional logging as it takes in account transient nature of
    identities and resources in the cloud.
