Does anyone have experience monitoring one off files with rsyslog and
sending them to a remote server?
I created a new conf file in /etc/rsyslog.d/ (ubuntu 12.04)
I have this in the file:
# File to Monitor
>From what ive read you need to change this line in the rsyslog.conf file:
$PrivDropToGroup adm (was syslog)
So if i have this right, it should poll that file every 10 seconds and send
the output to my syslog server IP over udp.
The problem is its not :\
I see other output from rsyslog on my log server, but nothing from this
Anyone have any advice?
(ive restarted the rsyslog service and rebooted the whole box.)
I get no errors when i restart the service.
I was pulling that information from these sites:
Thanks for any help.
