NAME ^

Transform::Alert::Input::Syslogd - Transform alerts from an internal Syslog daemon

SYNOPSIS ^

    # In your configuration
    <Input test>
       Type      Syslogd
       Interval  5  # you should set this to be very short
 
       # See Net::Syslogd->new
       <ConnOpts>
          LocalAddr  192.168.1.1
          LocalPort  514  # default
          # Timeout - don't bother
       </ConnOpts>
       # <Template> tags...
    </Input>

DESCRIPTION ^

This input type will spawn a syslog listener and process each message through the input template engine. If it finds a match, the results of the match are sent to one or more outputs, depending on the group configuration.

See Net::Syslogd for a list of the ConnOpts section parameters. The Timeout parameter is basically ignored, since get_message calls will use a timeout of 0 (ie: instant). This is so that the main daemon doesn't bother waiting for messages during each heartbeat. As such, the Interval setting should be set very low. (But, not zero; that would be unwise...)

OUTPUTS ^

Text

    $addr:$port - $datagram
