Thread: A question about syslog

  1. #1

    Default A question about syslog

    HI!
    Because I want to try to read the telnet relevant information for syslog purpose

    Therefore vi / etc / syslog-ng / syslog-ng.conf as

    source test {
    file ("/ var / log / xinetd.log");
    };
    destination test {file ("/ var / log / test.log");};
    log {source (test); destination (test);};



    Should be expected to produce test.log has been not automatically generated, so would like to ask you experts, what do I have neglected it?

    Thanks

    And next time you post computer text do so between CODE text Posting in Code Tags - A Guide. It will make it even easier to sport white space n the wrong places.

    Thank ! I already checked the /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf
    Code:
    file ("/var/log/xinetd.log");
    destination test  { file("/var/log/test.log"); };
    log { source(test); destination(test); };
    and they are no space ,but it still does not work.
    What do I have neglected it?

    You have not defined the source(test).

    He did not even tell what language he is using. How can we parse then against a definition?

    Thanks for the info. That has a man page (but it is not installed on my system). I will leave this to those who understand it

    I still have it installed, but not in use: the current suse choice is
    rsyslog. I had a look at my previous configuration to see how it was done
    and guess what he tries to do. That guessing part is incomplete.
