Revision as of 15:06, 3 October 2011 by NedBot
The following has been tested with Ubuntu 10.04 but should work with any distribution which include rsyslog and the imfile module.
Note: Test in bold will need to be adapted to value which are relevant to your system.
- Create the following file:
# $ModLoad imfile # # /home/xbmc/.xbmc/temp/xbmc.log $InputFileName /home/xbmc/.xbmc/temp/xbmc.log $InputFileTag tag_xbmc_log: $InputFileStateFile xbmc_log $InputFileSeverity debug $InputFileFacility local3 $InputRunFileMonitor # # check for new lines every 10 seconds $InputFilePollingInterval 10 # # send the log to a remote host: (optional) local3.debug @<remote_host>
- restart rsyslog:
sudo restart rsyslog
