    Example From DataScript "Log1" HTTP_REQ event:
    avi.vs.log("Hello World!")
    From DataScript "Log2" HTTP_RESP event:
    num = 2
    avi.vs.log("Hello " .. num .. " You!")
    Output from the client log:

    DataScript Log: [string "Log1"]:1: Hello World!
    
    DataScript Log: [string "Log2"]:1: Hello 2 You!
    Note: The logs are prefixed by meta information, which is generally the function name and line number calling avi.vs.log(). When the call is not made from a function, the name is the name of the script (in our example, the script is a string, not a file, named Log1).
    Significant Logging Example:
    From DataScript "Log1" HTTP_REQ event:
    avi.vs.log("Hello World!", avi.SIG_ENABLE)
    Output from the client log:
    DataScript Log: [string "Log1"]:1: Hello World!
    Significance: Datascript Significant Log.
