After the latest syslog-ng upgrade:[ALPM] warning: /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf installed as /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf.pacnew
[PACMAN] upgraded syslog-ng (3.5.6-1 -> 3.6.1-1)and using the default packaged syslog-ng.conf, syslog-ng.service fails due to syslog-ng segfaulting in libsdjournal.so.From 'journalctl -b':kernel: syslog-ng: segfault at 0 ip 00007f6e920d6b0e sp 00007f6
I want to configure log rotate on my syslog server where there is a directory called /syslog inside this directory there are couple of folders with different hostnames and there i can see syslog.log on each folders
My intention is to configure log rotate and keep 90days data and remove rest of the files and need to add this in cron to run weekly once
Hi all, how would I go about logging to syslog (systemd-journald) but for my own user? For example, a simple python program logs as follows:import syslog
syslog.syslog('hello, syslog')But when I run journalctl -xn as a normal user, I don't see the log message. I only see it when I run journalctl -xn as root.
