rsyslog send email script not working well

Postby mywolfking » Sat Feb 24, 2018 9:53 am

I use rsyslog to collect the switch device log.
and i could see the log already in the rsyslog server

i use a python script to send log to my mailbox. this is some configure of rsyslog.conf
Code: Select all
#configure the network device log
local2.*        /var/log/Internal.log
if $pri-text contains 'local2' then action (type="omprog"
binary="/usr/bin/python /var/log/"

and when i use this line in bash, it work well. and i could receive the email.
Code: Select all
echo " this |is |test| info| content" | /usr/bin/python

when i user "systemctl restart rsyslog.service " on ubuntu the rsyslog could send me email one or two days, but after 1-2 days ,it will not send me no more email.
and i checked the Internal.log file, there are new log also. but when i restart the services of rsyslog, it would send me email agagin.

so i want to know why rsyslog stop send me email. thanks
