Rsyslog is an open source software utility used on UNIX and Unix-like computer systems for forwarding log messages in an IP network. It implements the basic syslog protocol, extends it with content-based filtering, rich filtering capabilities, flexible configuration options and adds important features such as using TCP for transport.


rSyslog comes with a number of useful features:

  • Multi-threading
  • TCP
  • MySQL and PostgreSQL support
  • Filter any part of syslog message
  • Fully configurable output format
  • Suitable for enterprise-class relay chains
  • Templates
