What version do I have?

Postby MikeM-2468 » Wed Nov 30, 2011 9:40 pm

I have Rsyslogd running but it was installed with Debian 5.0.8. How can I find out the version of rsyslog? Then I'll ask a question about whether the version I have supports DYNfile.

Hi,

First open a new command prompt and use this command "tail -f /var/log/rsyslog.conf" in this command prompt you see now all syslog messages.

Then open a second command prompt and write "service rsyslog restart" then switch to the first command prompt.
There you see a message like this " rsyslogd: [origin software="rsyslogd" swVersion="4.6.4" x-pid="2494" x-info="http://www.rsyslog.com"] (re)start"

In this example it's the version 4.6.4.

Best regards,

Looks like I'm on 3.18.6. Does that version support the ability to have per-host syslog files?
