VERSION file-queue 2011-06-08 22:51:40 +02:00



  • ruby >= 1.9 (tested: 1.9.1, untested: 1.8 (maybe compatible))
  • tokyocabinet


# aptitude ruby1.9.1 ruby1.9.1-dev rubygems1.9.1 libtokyocabinet-dev libtokyotyrant-dev

If you've installed ruby1.8 (yet), you should run ruby1.9.1 instead ruby and gem1.9.1 instead gem. Change shebash in s2l.rb to



#!/usr/bin/env ruby1.9.1


# gem install syslog2logan


First you should know, the database environments are in this directory, where you call s2l.rb. You must use this directory for logan itself too! Don't use this directory for anything else.


Simple on Ubuntu:

# /var/lib/gems/1.9*/gems/syslog2logan-*/bin/s2l.rb


# sh -c 'nohup PATHTO/s2l.rb </dev/null >/dev/null 2>&1 &' &

Use it

Your Syslog-server should send everythin via tcp to port 1514. UDP and TLS aren't possible yet. If you want to use any of these, you can proxy it via a local syslog-ng.


You need these lines:

source s_server {
	unix-stream( "/dev/log" max-connections(100));
	# internal(); # Statistics about dests.  It's unimportant for LogAn.
	file( "/proc/kmsg");

destination d_server {
	tcp( "" port (1514));

log {
	source( s_server);
	destination( d_server);


I don't know. Please tell me, how to use.
