A simple rsyslog server for central log collection or distribution.
The rsyslog process listens on port 1514 in the container. You can
map this to any port you want on the host with the -p option
A volume has been defined for /var/log/remote where the remote host
syslog messages live. You can attach this to a directory on the
host to maintain persistance on the log files.
Before you run:
mkdir /srv/syslog chmod 777 /srv/syslog
docker run -d -p 1514:1514 \ -p 1514:1514/udp \ -v /srv/syslog:/var/log/remote \ --name=rsyslog --hostname=rsyslog cosmicq/docker-rsyslog
On the servers add this line to /etc/rsyslog.conf
Adjust the IP address to the external IP address of your server/host
Once it's started, you can set the permissions on the directory to
be owned by the UID that creates the host directories.
