I'm using systemd-journal-upload on serveral nodes to forward their journals to a single systemd-journal-remote sink, loghost01:

├── <foo-bar>
│   ├── system.journal
│   └── user-1000.journal
└── remote
    ├── remote-x.x.x.x.journal
    └── ...

This worked out the box for me on Debian 9 and systemd 232.

But I would like to have a redundant system, say loghost02, which works as a second systemd-journal-remote instance that also receives the uploaded journals.

Unfortunately, adding another URL to /etc/systemd/journal-upload.conf (on the uploading nodes) does not work:

URL=http://<REMOTE_IP_01>:<REMOTE_PORT>  # this is ignored
URL=http://<REMOTE_IP_02>:<REMOTE_PORT>  # this is working

# enable HTTPS

The config docs are silent on this issue.

How would I achieve redundancy in this scenario?


You have to achieve redundancy on the receiving end, by using a web service with redundant infrastructure to receive the logs.
