The peer_description variable is what you're looking for and the
prefixed_id function which helps with using it.
# Prepend the peer description, if set.
function prefixed_id(id: count): string
if ( peer_description == "" )
return fmt("%s", id);
return cat(peer_description, "-", id);
You give it a "count" and it will prepend the name of the peer where
the currently handled event originated.
