Hi Dieter,

there is no such implementation of SocketHubAppender for Logback that  
I'm aware of.
I wouldn't use it since it's very easy to DoS an application if it  
uses one.

If you'd like to receive events in an application I'd suggest to take  
a look at

It's an application I wrote so this is a shameless plug.

However, it contains a high-performance appender that is well suited  
for delivering the same event to multiple hosts.

Let me know if you have questions.
