Syslogd2 'instruments' a network or Linux-host-population combining maximal forensic-files with minimal outbound traffic volumes.
The Syslogd2 project provides a family of multi-threaded daemons focused on network- and host-management systems with secondary focus on host-logging. Each member of this family shares ' basic' features. Additional features are added as compile-time options.
Syslogd2 binaries are deployed as primary syslog daemons or as stand-alone data-collection applications, accepting input from the host's syslog daemon and other sources.
Transformation and pass/drop filters reduce outbound traffic due to granular filtering at point-of-collection.
Pre-loadable internal name-cache removes load on DNS.
Additional facilities allow for expanded edge-processing capability and TCP and Unix stream input/output sockets (with store-and-forward spooling) allow for reliable transport and network-friendly data flows in addition to reliable data hand-off to external applications.


  • Low mandatory (re-)learning curve. Works with traditional syslog configuration file formats.
  • Focus is on network- or host-management data collection instead of on host-logging requirements.
  • Works with either systemd or sysv init-scripts. Can be ported to other platforms.
  • Scales from 2 threads to 100s of threads using multiple thread-pool types & instances.
  • Internal, pre-loadable name-cache removes (or reduces) the load on DNS for host-name resolution.
  • Full, bi-directional support for IPv4 and IPv6 (both TCP and UDP), named-pipes and Linux-sockets (streaming and datagram). Fully Integrated input support for text-files.
  • Spooling based on connection-loss or on network-state (spooled data is flushed after network starts).
  • Configure as default syslog-daemon or as a generic application.
  • No startup dependence on IP network-state. Re-configures itself as network changes.
  • Automatic rotation of output-files upon reaching user-specified size.
  • Up to 1000 'extra' facilities (default: 32) for use in sorting mixed input into 'streams' based on event or envelope contents.
  • Filters sort events into 'streams' for file-output or discard events to minimize traffic over outbound connections.
  • 4 User-definable interrupts and ~10 interrupt-functions improve run-time management and flexibility of Syslod2.
  • Recognizes and accepts rfc3339 time formats and Syslog-Version-1 format (or approximations thereof).
  • Per-destination user-defined output formats (displayed fields and time-format).
  • Specialized thread-pool types for high-speed UDP input, text-file input, named-pipe input, & kernel input.
  • Configuration display for validation, archiving, trouble-shooting of configuration-files.
  • Command-tool provides interactive status and limited reconfiguration of running process.
  • Portable -- currently runs on Linux (re-certifying on Apple OSX).
