Subject [jira] [Created] (LOG4J2-183) SyslogAppender and remote rsyslog server
Date Mon, 25 Mar 2013 10:45:15 GMT
Eric Savidan created LOG4J2-183:

             Summary: SyslogAppender and remote rsyslog server
                 Key: LOG4J2-183
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-183
             Project: Log4j 2
          Issue Type: Question
          Components: Appenders
         Environment: Source logs : Tomcat 6.0.35 on RedHat EL 5.5
Rsyslog 4.6.2 server : RedHat EL  6.2
            Reporter: Eric Savidan


I send Tomcat logs to a remote rsyslog server via a SyslogAppender.

My appender configuration is the following :

<appender name="rtAppenderSyslog" class="org.apache.log4j.net.SyslogAppender">
  <param name="SyslogHost" value="xx.xx.xx.xx"/>
  <param name="Facility" value="local3"/>
  <param name="FacilityPrinting" value="true"/>
  <layout class="org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout">
    <param name="ConversionPattern" value="%d{HH:mm:ss,SSS} [%t] %-5p (%c{5}:%L) - %m%n"

The rsyslog server receives correctly the Tomcat logs but the rsyslog $hostname variable contains
the IP address of the Tomcat server.

Could you tell me if it's possible to get the Tomcat server hostname instead of its IP address

Thanks in advance for your support.
