Install rsyslog on RHEL/CENTOS

https://www.redhat.comhttps://www.centos.org/

 

The Adiscon RPM Repository supports recent rsyslog versions for RHEL/CentOS 6 and 7 including third party packages.

Using the daily stable build

Packages for rsyslog’s daily stable are created every night and updated at 01:00 am CET.

Note: for historical reasons, the repository is called “v8-stable-nightly”. This does not imply it is a testing or unstable build. It actually is a stable version, just updated on a daily schedule rather than a two month schedule. It is usually at least as stable as v8-stable, because it has the latest fixes.

To install the daily stable on RHEL/CentOS, simply execute the following commands as root from the command line:

cd /etc/yum.repos.d/
wget http://rpms.adiscon.com/v8-stable-nightly/rsyslog-nightly.repo # for CentOS 7
wget http://rpms.adiscon.com/v8-stable-nightly/rsyslog-nightly-rhel7.repo # for RHEL 7
yum install rsyslog

The following video explains the process, including of how to go back the the stock version (if you just want to give our repository a try):

Using scheduled stable build

 

To install rsyslog on RHEL/CentOS, simply execute the following commands as root from the command line:

cd /etc/yum.repos.d/
wget http://rpms.adiscon.com/v8-stable/rsyslog.repo # for CentOS 7
wget http://rpms.adiscon.com/v8-stable/rsyslog-rhel7.repo # for RHEL 7
yum install rsyslog

Note: the scheduled stable release may contain bugs already fixed in the daily stable releases. It is primarily meant for situations where infrequent package updates are desired.


Problems during the installation
Some users experiencing problems at the installation because of a incorrect resolution variable. So please try this first. Open the repofile and replace the variable “$releasever” in the third line through your operating system. Below you can find a example for RHEL7.

The line should looks like this before:

baseurl=http://rpms.adiscon.com/v8-stable/epel-$releasever/$basearch

After the change the line should look like this:

baseurl=http://rpms.adiscon.com/v8-stable/epel-7/$basearch
