debugfmt syntax

Postby mykev » Mon Jan 22, 2018 7:58 pm

hello, I have used debugfmt to gather very useful information about the fields coming into rsyslog. I see that you can use facilities as part of the *.* (localx.*) but is there anywahy I can also use it to find specific items either by host name or a known message field? What can I replace *.* with can i give it a udp/tcp port? I get gb an hour and still have some issues with certain systems that don't play by the rules, for instance rsa logs where the host usually is, now sits the date trying to sift through gb of data(plus the amount of space it takes) doesn't make much sense if we can filter on something specific.

Thanks in advance
