omuxsock: Unix sockets Output Module¶
This module supports sending syslog messages to local Unix sockets. Thus it provided a fast message-passing interface between different rsyslog instances. The counterpart to omuxsock is imuxsock. Note that the template used together with omuxsock must be suitable to be processed by the receiver.
Parameter names are case-insensitive.
obsolete legacy directives¶
$OMUxSockSocket Name of the socket to send data to. This has no default and must be set.
$OMUxSockDefaultTemplate This can be used to override the default template to be used together with omuxsock. This is primarily useful if there are many forwarding actions and each of them should use the same template.
Currently, only datagram sockets are supported.
Write all messages to socket¶
The following sample writes all messages to the “/tmp/socksample” socket.
$ModLoad omuxsock $OMUxSockSocket /tmp/socksample *.* :omuxsock:
