rsyslog 5.8.6-1ubuntu7 source package in Ubuntu


rsyslog (5.8.6-1ubuntu7) precise; urgency=low

  * debian/rsyslog.conf: set $WorkDirectory to /var/spool/rsyslog, which is
    the example location in documentation. When not configured it defaults to
    '/', which is undesirable. (LP: #918947, Closes: #656535)
  * debian/rsyslog.dirs: add /var/spool/rsyslog/
  * debian/usr.sbin.rsyslogd:
    - adjust for $WorkDirectory
    - allow 'r' on /var/log/** too (for imfile)

rsyslog: reliable system and kernel logging daemon

 Rsyslog is a multi-threaded implementation of syslogd (a system utility
 providing support for message logging), with features that include:
  * reliable syslog over TCP, SSL/TLS and RELP
  * on-demand disk buffering
  * email alerting
  * writing to MySQL or PostgreSQL databases (via separate output plugins)
  * permitted sender lists
  * filtering on any part of the syslog message
  * on-the-wire message compression

  * failover to backup destinations

 It is the default syslogd on Debian systems.
