Can you send syslog messages to different file
Below is a copy of the /etc/syslog.conf file. I am logging syslog messages from remote routers to this machine. My problem is the second to the last instruction "local7.* > /var/log/boot.log.
This sends the router infromation to the boot.log file along with the boot information. I want to be able to send the router information to the routers.log file and all the other local7.* info to the bool.log file. Does anyone know if a way to redirect info from specific hosts to specific files?
# Log all kernel messages to the console.
# Logging much else clutters up the screen.
# Log anything (except mail) of level info or higher.
# Don't log private authentication messages!
# The authpriv file has restricted access.
# Log all the mail messages in one place.
# Log cron stuff
# Everybody gets emergency messages
# Save news errors of level crit and higher in a special file.
# Save boot messages also to boot.log
#save logs from routers
