6 Controlling Logging : 6.1 Enabling syslog Log File Entries

To allow a connection to syslog, edit the /etc/rsyslog.conf file and uncomment the protocol you wish to use. You must also ensure that the UDPServerRun or TCPServerRun entry associated with the protocol includes the port number to which log entries will be sent.
After modifying the syslog configuration file, restart the rsyslog service to enable the connections:
After modifying the rsyslog.conf file on the Failover Manager host, you must modify the Failover Manager properties to enable logging. Use your choice of editor to modify the properties file (/etc/edb/efm-3.5/efm.properties.in) specifying the type of logging that you wish to implement:
You must also specify syslog details for your system. Use the syslog.protocol parameter to specify the protocol type (UDP or TCP) and the syslog.port parameter to specify the listener port of the syslog host. The syslog.facility value may be used as an identifier for the process that created the entry; the value must be between LOCAL0 and LOCAL7.
