The rocket-fast system for log processing


Installation is usually as simple as typing

$ sudo yum install rsyslog,
$ sudo apt-get install rsyslog, or
$ sudo apk add rsyslog

Unfortunately distributions usually provide rather old versions of rsyslog, and so there are chances you want to have something newer. To do this easily, we provide packages and Docker containers.

Alternatively you can build directly from source. That provides most flexibility and control over the resulting binaries, but obviously also requires most work. Some prior knowledge with building software on your system is recommended.
