    Central logging on 12.04 LTS quick question

    Morning all, today's project is to start moving all our server logs to one box. I don't mind doing the reading, just wanted to see if there is any changes over the years. I am looking at this thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1349753 which is pretty straight forward, but that is regarding version 9 which is a bit outdated, so before I started playing, wanted to make sure not much has changed regarding this.

    Tnx

    yeah, that looks about right

    I did something similar last summer,
    you can have a look at my notes here

    setting up a remote logging server isn't at all difficult. Organising the (central) logs otoh might require some thought / experimenting, but the basic mechanisms are fairly straightforward.

    Thanks. Was pretty straight forward, but have 2 other issues which I will have to do some research on.

    1. The central server is not getting the test *.* logs from the client server, but they are coming throught like this;
    Mar 6 21:30:04 localhost snmpd[1181]: Connection from UDP: [127.0.0.1]:48445->[127.0.0.1]
    Now that's is naturally an snmpd check, but it says localhost as opposed to the server name. Actually I would rather them goto a different file altogether, so believe thats more the template / rule thing, but that's #1.

    2. I need other logs, such as glassfish/tomcat logs which don't use syslog, as well as apache (which I saw a how-to), but going to focus on glassfish right now.

    So those are my next 2 steps.

    Thanks for getting me on right path.
