If I have the following two lines in the rsyslogd.conf

*.* |/var/run/rsyslog/pipe1
*.* |/var/run/rsyslog/pipe2

Will all messages be sent to both pipes? I have two programs that want to inspect lines written to syslog, for different purposes. One program I wrote and one I didn't, hence the two named pipes.

  • It doesn't work. It only writes to the second pipe. – Nicole Sep 15 '15 at 11:50
