I created 2 new cool logging modules.

The fitst one, nginx socketlog module, is a connection-oriented 
alternative of udplog module that uses BSD syslog remote logging 
protocol. It can be used with ng-syslogd to centralize logging. You can 
get it here:


The second one, nginx redislog module, is a redis logging client for 
nginx. It maintains one connection per peer per worker to a redis 
databse and logs everything that you say directly to that database. 
Destination key is of course dynamic: you can have one key per server or 
with the help of special variable even per server per day! You can use 
standard nginx variables in key names. This opens truly amazing 
opportunities. No need to rotate logs anymore! Come and look at what 
this module is capable of:


Here in my blog I expand a little bit on internals guts of these modules:
