|Main Page -> rsyslog|
rsyslog is a (remote) syslog client that can send (rfc 3164) syslog messages to
remote syslog servers. It is designed to be similar to the
utility but send the messages to a remote server rather than a local syslogger.
It is used like this:
rsyslog hostname facility.priority "message" [appname]
Update: rsyslog (Ver: 1.1.0) will now display the possible options for facility and priority if no parameters are given. (The older version only displayed basic usage).
The distribution is in source tar archive.
This code is released under the GPL.
This application was written primarily to test the remote syslog code I maintain for a number of projects, and to test the syslog daemon that I have written called lsyslog.
