Remote Syslog add GUI for draft-ietf-syslog-protocol-23

Recommended Posts

Graylog accepts remote syslog messages only if i manually set the protocol/format to RSYSLOG_SyslogProtocol23Format.

To do this you currently need to:

  • activate the Remote Syslog Server in the Settings GUI
  • Login via ssh as root and edit /etc/rsyslog.conf, add ";RSYSLOG_SyslogProtocol23Format" to the end of the syslog line
    *.* @@YOUR_REMOTE_SERVER_IP:514;RSYSLOG_SyslogProtocol23Format
  • Change something in the WEBUI again (not touching the remote syslog options) to reload the rsyslog service


After editing the config like this the GUI Options for the Remote syslog server seem to no longer have an effect.


Can you add a dropdown for the rsyslog format template options?

I think, that this is not only a valid (and unanswered) question but also a valuable "enhancement request". Not only for Graylog use case ...

from me: +1


Because rsyslog config via GUI is very rudimentary, an option to use a custom rsyslog.conf could be helpful.

Is there a recommendation to tune rsyslog via snippets in /etc/rsyslog.d/*.conf


Best regards
