get rid of NAGIOS logs


in my enviroment we get nagios logs reported. these are like this:

Sep  4 16:38:36 nxsdxq03 xinetd[20227]: START: nrpe pid=9420 from=
Sep  4 16:38:36 nxsdxq03 nrpe[9420]: INFO: SSL/TLS initialized. All network traffic will be encrypted.
Sep  4 16:38:36 nxsdxq03 xinetd[20227]: EXIT: nrpe status=0 pid=9420 duration=0( sec)
Sep  4 16:44:46 nxinfp04 nrpe[13077]: Unknown option specified in config file '/usr/local/nagios/etc/nrpe.cfg' - Line 222
We want to get rid of INFO, START and EXIT logs.

for START and EXIT logs I know I can do one of these things:

• Add the line “log_on_success = “ in /etc/xinetd.d/nrpe file
• Commenting “log_on_success = PID HOST DURATION EXIT” line in /etc/xinetd.conf file.

for INFO logs I am not sure what we can do and really want your help.

I dont want any INFO, START or EXIT log in my messages file but I want all other nrpe logs.

I know about adding "use_syslog=0” in “/usr/local/nagios/etc/nrpe.cfg” file. but that would stop all the nrpe logs.

any way to just stop the INFO logs???

hey guys,

I guess i found a solution for my problem ..

:msg$, contains, "<string you dont want to see>" ~

You do have to take care of its placement in /etc/rsyslog.conf.

but the problem is i dont have rsyslog configured in my enviroment. is there something like this in syslog.conf ??
