rsyslog

The rocket-fast system for log processing

First Impression of Journald

We got a couple of questions on the planned new logging system that shall come with systemd. Rainer Gerhards, rsyslog’s development lead, has taken a quick look at journald and posted about his first impression. Have a look at his blog post journal and rsyslog if you are interested in how we think rsyslog is affected. In the mean time, there is also a description of why we think journald’s log chaining is simply broken and conveys a false sense of security.

One thought on “First Impression of Journald

  1. journald is killing Linux !

    Linux : it’s text-file, text-configuration, text-journal !

    The journald system is a evil system : binary log : beurk !

    No more compatility with security programs that use text-log !

    No information to how-to use journald !

    If journald replace definitely rsyslog, why not migrate to Windows ?
