log_writers currently supports screen, database and file.

syslog allows more flexibility in log management. Unix and Linux based distributions manage system logs and applications logs with rsyslog or syslog-ng component. Rsyslog manages and stores logs. It enhances security by centraling log management.

Pros :

  • No more file rotation needed
  • No more database log table purge
  • No more logs into web application dir
  • Centralized log management

Is it possible to add syslog log_writer ?

Configuration implementation example :
log_writers[] = syslog

Code implementation example :

Thank you,

Best regards.
