I would like to use syslog to log messages coming from my PHP based site. My question is - can I add custom facility name? I know there are predefined facilities like:
auth, authpriv, cron, dæmon, kern, lpr, mail, mark, news, syslog, user, UUCP and local0 through local7.
And as I understand I could use local0 - local6 facilities for this.
But I just feel that if I could add something like this to syslog:
It would be visually easier to understand for others. Unfortunately above line results in:
rsyslogd-3000: unknown facility name "mySiteName"
So - is there a way to use custom facility name?
