We use LMS 3.2 with RME 4.3.1 on Solaris 10 and tried to change the parameter SYSLOG_FILES=/var/log/syslog_info in Collector.properties to a file on NFS mount. The remote syslog file resides on a NetApp Storage System and is accessible by casuser, we can do:
su - casuser
tail -100 remote_file
tail -f remote_file
and see logs.
We restart SyslogCollector and SyslogAnalyzer after editing Collector.properties, however RME SyslogCollector can't get logs from it.
We check this from RME > Tools > Syslog > Collector Status, columns are N/A
We can use any local file without problem and append logs from remote_file to local_file with:
tail -100 remote_file >> local_file. This works.
Normally SyslogCollector should not care if the file is local or remote.
The reason we want to use this configuration is that there is already a syslog server for all devices and don't want to send logs to a second one, the RME server. We prefer to direct SyslogCollector to read the remote_file.
All suggestions welcome!
