Specifies whether the audit log information is to be recorded 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 (the default setting).

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, and is not supported on Windows systems.


In recent Linux versions, syslog has been replaced by rsyslog and the configuration file is in /etc/rsyslog.conf.
