Network Log Server

Badger provides centralised network logging through syslog-ng. Client machines can be configured to send syslog events to, and these will be stored on disk in a central place. This will be especially useful for machines like Santo which has a compact flash root filesystem which won't like being written too many times.


The server configuration requires the following: /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf|''0@@''

The logfiles will need to be rotated so they don't fill up the entire filesystem; /etc/logrotate.d/netlog|''1@@''


Each client machine will need the following configuration: /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf|''2@@''
