Rsyslog configuration in Cumulus


Hi,

I am trying to send the syslog messages to remote Rsyslog server configured in Centos. I can see rsyslog process running in the cumulus already:
root 856 1 0 Dec02 ? 00:00:01 /usr/sbin/rsyslogd -c4

What configuration are need in Cumulus to send syslog messages to remote Rsyslog server ?

Hi Sushil, does this document help you with setting up the remote syslog config?

In addition to what Pete said, the official rsyslog documentation for remote logging is here:

http://www.rsyslog.com/doc/v5-stable/configuration/actions.html#remote-machine

Basically you're going to want to put something like this in /etc/rsyslog.conf:

*.*@192.168.0.1


Thanks for the prompt reply, i am able to get the syslog in the remote server now.
