Along those lines (and possibly what the OP was looking for as well), what are the conventions around key names including namespacing? Or what are the common environment variables you capture for a given service, i.e. the boilerplate stuff.

Syslog has very detail key name sand namespacing (http://www.iana.org/assignments/syslog-parameters/syslog-par...) which can be filled in with application related data and this can be then parsed by any PaaS logging platform / OSS logging tool

I think syslog is a widely accepted log format and most of the tools which revolve around log metrics do support syslog and more so with parsing tools
