Subject SyslogAppender and remote rsyslog server
Date Wed, 10 Apr 2013 15:18:03 GMT


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 help.




PS : Log4j release : log4j-1.2.16

       Tomcate release : 6.0.35

       OS : Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.5 (Tikanga)
