rsyslog nested conditions


How to apply nested conditions in rsyslog as in pseudo-C+rsyslog it should be like this:
Code:
if ($(fromhost-ip) == '192.168.73.1') then
  if (msg, contains, "DROP") then
    /var/log/my_router/dropped;
  else if (msg, contains, "REJECT") then
    /var/log/my_router/rejected;
  else
    /var/log/my_router/general;

Reading http://www.rsyslog.com/doc/omruleset.html I make it look something like:
Code:
$ModLoad omruleset

$RuleSet routerlogs
$RulesetCreateMainQueue on
:msg,contains,"DROP" /var/log/my_router/dropped
& ~
:msg,contains,"REJECT" /var/log/my_router/dropped
& ~

#switch back to default ruleset
$ruleset RSYSLOG_DefaultRuleset

$ActionOmrulesetRulesetName routerlogs
:FROMHOST, isequal, "192.168.73.1" :omruleset:

*.* /var/log/my_router/general
...or not. I didn't test this rule set so YMMV(VM). Best not use Live log sources unless you've got a default rule target (don't discard) and know how to perform basic Rsyslog troubleshooting.
