Forwarding syslog messages from UNIX/Linux devices
Zenoss Core has its own syslog server (zensyslog). Managed devices should point their syslog daemons to the system.
To do this, edit the /etc/rsyslog.conf file and add an entry, where 22.214.171.124 is the zensyslog IP:
- Log in to the target device as a super user.
- Open the /etc/rsyslog.conf file with a text editor (such as vi).
- Enter *.debug, and then press the Tab key.
Enter the host name or IP address of the server. For example:
- Save the file and exit the file editor program.
Restart the Syslog service using the command below:
