What syslog-ng is

The syslog-ng application is a flexible and highly scalable system logging application that is ideal for creatingcentralized and trusted logging solutions. The main features of syslog-ng are summarized below.

  • Reliable log transfer: The syslog-ng application enables you to send the log messages of your hoststo remote servers using the latest protocol standards. The logs of different servers can be collectedand stored centrally on dedicated log servers. Transferring log messages using the RLTP™protocolensures that no messages are lost.
  • Secure logging using TLS: Log messages may contain sensitive information that should not beaccessed by third parties. Therefore, syslog-ng supports the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocolto encrypt the communication. TLS also allows the mutual authentication of the host and the serverusing X.509 certificates.
  • Client-side failover: When transferring messages to a remote server, the syslog-ng PE clients can beconfigured to send the log messages to secondary servers if the primary server becomes unaccessible.
  • Disk-based message buffering: The Premium Edition of syslog-ng stores messages on the local harddisk if the central log server or the network connection becomes unavailable. The syslog-ng applicationautomatically sends the stored messages to the server when the connection is reestablished, in thesame order the messages were received. The disk buffer is persistent – no messages are lost even ifsyslog-ng is restarted.
  • Direct database access: Storing your log messages in a database allows you to easily search andquery the messages and interoperate with log analyzing applications. The syslog-ng applicationsupports the following databases: MSSQL, MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL, and SQLite.
  • Encrypted and timestamped log storage: The Premium Edition of syslog-ng can store log messagessecurely in encrypted, compressed, and timestamped binary files. Timestamps can be requested froman external Timestamping Authority (TSA).
  • Heterogeneous environments: The syslog-ng application is the ideal choice to collect logs in massivelyheterogeneous environments using several different operating systems and hardware platforms,including Linux, Unix, BSD, Sun Solaris, HP-UX, Tru64, and AIX.
  • Filter and classify: The syslog-ng application can sort the incoming log messages based on theircontent and various parameters like the source host, application, and priority. Directories, files, anddatabase tables can be created dynamically using macros. Complex filtering using regular expressionsand boolean operators offers almost unlimited flexibility to forward only the important log messagesto the selected destinations.
  • Parse and rewrite: The syslog-ng application can segment log messages to named fields or columns,and also modify the values of these fields.
  • IPv4 and IPv6 support: The syslog-ng application can operate in both IPv4 and IPv6 networkenvironments; it can receive and send messages to both types of networks.

Why is syslog-ng needed?

Log messages contain information about the events happening on the hosts. Monitoring system events is essentialfor security and system health monitoring reasons.The original syslog protocol separates messages based on the priority of the message and the facility sendingthe message. These two parameters alone are often inadequate to consistently classify messages, as manyapplications might use the same facility — and the facility itself is not even included in the log message. Tomake things worse, many log messages contain unimportant information. The syslog-ng application helps youto select only the really interesting messages, and forward them to a central server.Company policies or other regulations often require log messages to be archived. Storing the important messagesin a central location greatly simplifies this process.
