socklog cooperates with the runit package to create a small and secure replacement for syslogd. socklog supports system logging through Unix domain sockets (/dev/log) and UDP sockets (0.0.0.0:514) with the help of runit's runsvdir, runsv, and svlogd.
socklog provides a different network logging concept, and also does log event notification. svlogd has built in log file rotation based on file size, so there is no need for any cron jobs to rotate the logs. socklog is secure, small and reliable.
What's New in This Release:
· With this version, the socklog-conf program creates the socklog service directories in /etc/sv/ instead of /etc/socklog/, and names them socklog-unix, socklog-klog, etc.
· Additionally, it creates a ./check script in the socklog-unix service directory, which is utilized by runit's sv program when starting or checking the service.
