rsyslog

The rocket-fast system for log processing

How to use the Ubuntu repository

The Adiscon Ubuntu Repository has been setup to provide support for the latest rsyslog versions on Ubuntu 12 including support for necessary third party packages. Please note that the Ubuntu Repository is open for testing at the moment, and contains only the latest version for v7-devel. The new packages are based in the original and latest Ubuntu 12 rsyslog packages, so in most cases an simple sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade will be enough to update rsyslog. Please note that these packages are currently experimental. Use at your own risk.
