Thanks, I see.
I'm currently trying to figure out how to configure such a filtering
without overcomplicating the whole task.
Currently, I'm passing different logger objects to different instances
of my class, and I wouldn't like those instances to perform any
additional log-related actions, besides BOOST_LOG(logger) << "some
So if it were possible to associate some attribute value with each
logger, that would probably solve my problem: I could create as much
sinks as I need, while filtering every sink like this:
 sink->set_filter(expr::has_attr(my_attr) && my_attr == n);
Is it possible to "link" an attribute value to a logger?
