Introduction to Syslog-ng

syslog-ng embodies the next generation of logging systems, and is the first truly flexible and scalable system logging application.

Dependencies

Required

Optional

Non-Multilib

Compile the package:

./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc/syslog-ng \
    --localstatedir=/var/lib/syslog-ng \
    --enable-ipv6 --enable-tcp-wrapper &&
make

Install the package

make install

Multilib

This package does not provide any libraries so only one installation is needed.

32Bit

Compile the package:

CC="gcc ${BUILD32}" PKG_CONFIG_PATH="${PKG_CONFIG_PATH32}" \
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc/syslog-ng \
    --localstatedir=/var/lib/syslog-ng \
    --enable-ipv6 --enable-tcp-wrapper &&
make

Install the package

make install

N32

Compile the package:

CC="gcc ${BUILDN32}" PKG_CONFIG_PATH="${PKG_CONFIG_PATHN32}" \
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc/syslog-ng \
    --localstatedir=/var/lib/syslog-ng \
    --enable-ipv6 --enable-tcp-wrapper &&
make

Install the package

make install

64Bit

Compile the package:

CC="gcc ${BUILD64}" PKG_CONFIG_PATH="${PKG_CONFIG_PATH64}" \
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc/syslog-ng \
    --localstatedir=/var/lib/syslog-ng \
    --enable-ipv6 --enable-tcp-wrapper &&
make

Install the package

make install

Confuration

Bootscript

Caution.png

Note

You may need a newer tarball then the one provided with your CLFS system as this boot script is still fairly new

Uninstall Sysklogd with the following commands:

rm -v /usr/sbin/{k,sys}logd &&
rm -v /usr/share/man/man5/syslog.conf.5
rm -v /usr/share/man/man8/{sysklogd.8,syslogd.8,klogd.8} &&
rm -v /etc/syslog.conf &&
rm -v /etc/rc.d/*/*sysklogd

Install the init script included in the bootscripts package.

make install-syslog-ng

syslog-ng.conf

The following is an example configuration that will work in most situations:

mkdir -pv /etc/syslog-ng &&
cat > /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf << "EOF"
# Begin /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf

    sync (0);
    time_reopen (10);

    long_hostnames(off); 
    use_dns (no);
    use_fqdn (no);
    create_dirs (no);
    keep_hostname (yes);
    stats(43200);
    };
