Syslog Server Configuration


Hello,
Can anyone help me to configure a syslog server in centOS 6.2?
My requirement is to configure a syslog server which should collect all the logs from cisco routers and windows servers centrally.
Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Tony

We'll be glad to help...what problem(s) are you having right now? CentOS ships with a syslog server already running...if you want other devices to log to it, just tell those other systems/devices to send syslog information to your CentOS server. Done.

If you have syslog-ng installed (do an "rpm -qa | grep -i syslog", and see what package is installed), and want to get a bit more involved, you can send each device (based on IP address/hostname), to a different log file. There are many examples you can find on how to set up syslog-ng to do this.

Managing Syslog

You might want to give LogZilla a try (http://www.logzilla.pro) - it provides a Web interface for your logs.
