Journaled log library
JLog is short for “journaled log” and this package is really an API and implementation that is libjlog. What is libjlog? libjlog is a pure C, very simple durable message queue with multiple subscribers and publishers both thread and multi-process safe. The basic concept is that publishers can open a log and write messages to it while subscribers open the log and consume messages from it. “That sounds easy.” libjlog abstracts away the need to perform log rotation or maintenance by publishing into fixed size log buffers and eliminating old log buffers when there are no more consumers pending.
