VDR 2.0 syslog facility

Hi all,

in VDR1.2 I successfully forwarded the data recovery messages to a monitoring system by filtering the "uucp" facility in the (r)syslog.conf.

if $syslogfacility-text contains 'uucp' then @<target-IP>

In VDR 2.0 this is not working anymore, but I didn't find any hints in the documentation.

Has the facility changed or does someone has a better filter setting ?

Thanks and best regards

Andreas

Hi agin,

meanwhile I found out, that in VDR 2.0 the syslog-facility "user" is used.

In rsyslog.conf (I replaced syslog with rsyslog) the following line could be used:

if $syslogfacility-text contains 'user' then @<target-IP>

or (maybe more accurate):

if $programname contains 'datarecovery' then @<target-IP>

Regards

Andreas
