I'm currently studying for my Red Hat Certification exam, and I've come across an example in my book dealing with system log architecture. I'm currently working a classroom RHEL7 environment.
My question is about the syntax but here is the lab so you have all of the info:
I am asked to configure rsyslogd so that it records syslog messages to authentication and security issues that have priority alert or higher to the file /var/log/auth-errors. I'm asked to use the file /etc/rsyslog.d/auth-errors.conf to do this, creating the file if necessary.
Can anyone explain to me the significance of the d? I'm confused about the difference between rsyslogd, rsyslog.d and rsyslog.
My guess is that the d signifies a daemon but I'd like to be sure.
Any guidance is appreciated!
