Thumbs up where do we need to change daemon startup options


I just installed rsyslog-3.18.8 . So i need to change the daemon startup scripts. I am not getting where should i cahnge those. I cahnged in /etc/sysconfig/rsyslog. But i am getting the log messages saying that rsyslog is running in compatibility mode.

Some of the log messages i am getting are as follows:

Message: Warning: backward compatibility layer added to following directive to rsyslog.conf: ModLoad imuxsock

Message: Warning: backward compatibility layer added to following directive to rsyslog.conf: MarkMessagePeriod 1200

Message: Warning: backward compatibility layer added to following directive to rsyslog.conf: ModLoad immark

Message: WARNING: rsyslogd is running in compatibility mode. Automatically generated config directives may interfer with your rsyslog.conf settings. We suggest upgrading your config and adding -c3 as the first rsyslogd option.

Message: [origin software="rsyslogd" swVersion="3.16.1" x-pid="6139" x-info=""] restart

These are some of the log messages related to compatibility that I receive.

Please help me solving this problem.

Knowing your distro would be a great starting point.
Maybe you should add it to your profile?

A good way to find out would be:

find /etc -type f -name "*syslog*"

and see what turns up. Searching leads to all sorts of interesting goodies.

I don't know the answer to Prakash's question, but I know he is running Centos 5.2. Maybe that helps. What he needs is add "-c3" to the set of startup options. Some background can be found in the "starter thread" on the rsyslog forums:



rsyslog, syslog
