We've setup a central log server using rsyslog. I was just wondering if it's possible to send the ip address along with the syslog message from the client.
I'm sending the message using a template and tried using
%fromhost-ip%. As expected it's showing up as
127.0.0.1 on the remote server.
So I was wondering is there any way we can embed a bash variable in the
The only other alternative I see is to hardcode the ip which doesn't look too nice.
I'm currently using the below template.
$template linux_err,"<%PRI%>%TIMESTAMP% %source% %syslogtag% %smg%"
Guess using the
%fromhost-ip% on the receiving server is the only option.
