SYS: Configure a system to log to a remote system

Share this link

Edit the /etc/rsyslog.conf file and uncomment the following lines at the end of the file where remote-host is the name of the syslog server:

#$WorkDirectory /var/lib/rsyslog
#$ActionQueueFileName fwdRule1
#$ActionQueueMaxDiskSpace 1g
#$ActionQueueSaveOnShutdown on
#$ActionQueueType LinkedList
#$ActionResumeRetryCount -1
#*.* @@remote-host:514

Restart the syslog service:

# service rsyslog restart

After setting up the syslog server, test the configuration:

# logger -p local0.notice -t TEST "Test"

On the syslog server, check the TEST string in the /var/log/messages file:

# grep "TEST" /var/log/messages
