Description Dries Michiels 2020-05-20 09:56:59 UTC
Created attachment 214687 [details]

This patch adds a new rc_variable: librenms_logflags, which defaults to logging to a logfile. When overwriting this variable from rc.conf by eg "-S -T librenms", this can be used to use syslog instead of direct logfile logging.

I default to logfile logging because not everyone wants to use the same syslog parameters. Also, I don't like ports including syslog or newsyslog sample files because of the various flags people tend to keep consistent. EG compression on or off for newsyslog rotation probably depends on if you have ZFS (already compressed) or UFS.

I my not get to this until June. PGCon is next week and BSDCan is the week after.

My current priorities are there.
