I want to use
syslog(3) to write application logs to a central recorder. The application runs on a collection of computers on the same subnet.
Not interested (at present) in capturing system (non-application) logs to the central server. Not interested in having the application logs captured into the systemd journal of each local system.
Aim is to have
syslog(3) with facility of "local0"-"local7" skip the systemd journal, and instead be written to the recorder via UDP (port 514 likely).
This seems to be the inverse of the usual question (how to redirect application logs into syslog).
Currently puzzling out what makes sense for the Centos systemd/rsyslog lashup. To be clear, I expect to have this figured out in the next few days.
Putting up the question for the next guy, who like me searched for an answer, without immediate luck. :)
