Specifies whether to record the audit log information in the directory as given by the edb_audit_directory parameter or to the directory and file managed by the syslog process. Set to file to use the directory specified by edb_audit_directory.

Set to syslog to use the syslog process and its location as configured in the /etc/syslog.conf file. The syslog setting is valid only for EDB Postgres Advanced Server running on a Linux host. It isn't supported on Windows systems.


In recent Linux versions, syslog was replaced with rsyslog, and the configuration file is in /etc/rsyslog.conf.
