New rsyslog7 packages are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The rsyslog7 packages provide an enhanced, multi-threaded syslog daemon. It supports on-demand disk buffering, reliable syslog over TCP, SSL, TLS and RELP, writing to databases (MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, and many more), email alerting, fully configurable output formats (including high-precision timestamps), the ability to filter on any part of the syslog message, on-the-wire message compression, and the ability to convert text files to syslog.
This enhancement update adds the rsyslog7 packages to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. These packages are a replacement for previously used rsyslog packages. (BZ#869600
All users who require rsyslog7 are advised to install these new packages. All users of rsyslog are advised to migrate to these new packages.
