Logging

Overview

A simple application that demonstrates use of logging subsystem. It demonstrates main features: severity levels, timestamping, module level filtering and instance level filtering. It also showcases logging capabilities in terms of performance.

Building and Running

This project outputs multiple log message to the console. It can be built and executed on QEMU as follows:

cd $ZEPHYR_BASE/samples/subsys/logging/logger
mkdir build && cd build
cmake -GNinja -DBOARD=qemu_x86 ..
ninja run
