rsyslog iconrsyslog 7.6.0 / 8.1.4

An Open Source, free and enhanced syslog daemon for Linux-based operating systems
rsyslog is an open source command-line software, a daemon that provides an enhanced and multi-threaded version of the old syslogd utility. Actually, it’s a drop-in replacement for original syslogd.

The software provides support for on-demand disk buffering, email alerting, on-the-wire message compression, as well as the ability to convert text files to the syslog format.

rsyslog features multi-threading support, it’s capable of filtering any part of a syslog message, supports syslog over TCP, TLS, SSL, and RELP protocols, supports MySQL, Oracle and PostgreSQL databases, provides fully configurable output format, and it is suitable for enterprise-class relay chains.
