4.2.2 Configure syslog-ng

List of content


The syslog-ng software is recommended as a replacement for the syslogd daemon and provides improvements over syslogd, such as connection-oriented (i.e. TCP) transmission of logs, the option to log to database formats, and the encryption of log data en route to a central logging server.

This section only applies if syslog-ng is installed on the system.
