OpenSUSE Install :: Syslog Files Accumulating Searching For Setting To Delete Old Syslog Files?

Oct 7, 2010

I noticed in my system that my root partition is getting full. I found a lot of old compacted syslogfiles. Had a look at etc/sysconfig editor eg cron but could not find a setting which allows to delete files older than a month. Where and how could I influence this ? I deleted manually all syslog files older than a month. Approx 6GB

CentOS 5 :: Configuring Syslog-ng 3.0.3 With 5.3

Oct 5, 2009

I installed syslog-ng-3.0.3-1.rhel5.i386.rpm and at first blush it appears to be working fine to /var/log/messages. However it doesn't seem to be doing any other ancillary logging as defined in syslog-ng.conf (I've had to mod /etc/init.d/syslog-ng to look in /etc). e.g.

destination d_auth { file("/var/log/secure"); };
filter f_filter3 { facility(authpriv); };
log { source(s_sys); filter(f_filter3); destination(d_auth); };

I'm using a syslog-ng.conf which has served me well in the past (v1.6.9 on fedora).

CentOS 5 Server :: How To Log Vsftpd To Syslog

Jan 11, 2009

I open "man vsftpd.conf", it says syslog_enable If enabled, then any log output which would have gone o /var/log/vsftpd.log goes to the system log instead. Logging is done under the FTPD facility. Default: NO So I add "syslog_enable=YES" to the /etc/vsftpd.conf, and add "ftpd.* /var/log/ftplog" into /etc/syslog.conf. But there is no log infomation in the ftplog file.

CentOS 5 :: Syslog Server For SOHO Infrastructure?

Aug 7, 2011

I have a dual-processor x86 box with CentOS 5 Linux 2.6.18-238.19.1.el5, mysql Ver 14.12 Distrib 5.0.77, and tons of storage space. I want to run a syslog solution on this box for a SOHO infrastructure. We've got routers, switches, Windows servers, other Linux boxes, etc. I've looked at syslog-ng, but it seems rather overkill, but I like the idea of storing logs in a MySql database. Is there anything I can yum install?

CentOS 5 :: What Does Rsyslog (using Yum) Install And How To Handle Conflicts With Syslog

Aug 21, 2009

I am thinking about installing rsyslog using yum, but I only want to try it out first and don't want to create conflicts and problems that will be hard to revert. When I ask yum on CentOS 5 about rsyslog, I get this (note much older version - it's too bad that even the latest STABLE rsyslog isn't in the repository):

CentOS 5 Networking :: Syslog-ing Messages From A Particular Host To A Particular Log File

Oct 12, 2009

I've just configured my Linksys RVS-4000 router to syslog messages to remote syslogd server (i.e. my CentOS5 machine). Redirecting messages was easy, but now I'm having difficulties to redirect those same messages received from Linksys to a separate log file. By default, all these messages are logged to /var/log/messages, and after browsing manual pages for syslog, syslog.conf, and syslogd, came to suspect that what I want isn't possible.

CentOS 5 :: Syslog-ng Remote Clients But No Local Logs?

May 13, 2010

I installed syslog-ng so I can receive remote logs. this is working however since I disabled syslog on my syslog-ng server I am not logging in /var/log/messages cron and some others.locally)I know this is because my syslog-ng.conf only references remote and not local.How can I edit the syslog-ng.conf file so that I can receive remote and local? I tried this however when adding in portions of the default config, I only receive local and not remote logs anymore. I am forwarding my config.

# syslog-ng configuration file.
# This should behave pretty much like the original syslog on RedHat. But

CentOS 5 Server :: Rotating Named Logs Via Syslog.conf?

Mar 1, 2010

OS CentOS 5.4 I have a DNS server that is logging all named and dns requests to the chrooted named directory. By default named logs to /var/log/messages but I want to isolate all the dns queries and requests to separate files. I know I can add entries to /etc/syslog.conf to "roll" the logs and logrotate should pick them up but fuzzy as to the syntax. I don't know what "tag" to use in the first fieild. for example

# Log anything (except mail) of level info or higher.
# Don't log private authentication messages!

Here is the logging section of my named.conf

# pwd
# /var/named/chroot/etc

Ubuntu :: Direct Syslog Messages To Particular Tty?

Aug 24, 2009

I wrote a script which will run in ubuntu box and will display in tty1, without loading the gdm. The problem is when I plugged in a usb drive it will cause some messages to be printed into the current tty user logged in.

Like : [sdb] Assuming drive cache: write through

This is really disturbing when a user is running the script. Is there anyway that I can direct all the messages to some other tty which I don't use.

Networking :: Remote Syslog With Dynamic Ip?

Nov 30, 2010

I'm having two problems with remote syslogging with this configuration in syslog.conf:

*.info;authpriv.*;cron.* @myhost.dnsalias.com

As you can see the logging is made to an host with dynamic ip, and as soon as the ip changes the logging seems to stop.

Another thing is that it only seems to log the first part (*.info), the other ones don't appear.

Server :: Disabling Syslog Compression?

Dec 3, 2010

I�m installing fail2ban to improve the security of a home asterisk server which from time to time becomes the target of some sip account cracker and/or ssh brute force attack.For those not familiar with fail2ban, this utility monitors log files to find matches with user specified expressions to identify the presence of a brute force attack. Then configures iptables rules to block the offending IP.Here�s an example:
