Syslog is not updating

It assumes you have sudo access, you’re on a common linux distribution with syslog-ng 3.2 or higher, it receives local system logs, and port 514 is open to outbound connections.If you have different requirements, please see the Advanced section.Open your file, which is usually found in the /etc/syslog-ng/ directory.After configuring the v Center Syslog Collector using this excellent article by Jason Boche, my v Center Syslog Collector was not receiving messages from the configured ESXi servers.It is only for local usage @scott32746 : I will check rights today, but I know, that rsyslogd is running with parameter "-c 4", /etc/have been set up correctly and rsyslogd starts on runlevel 2345.Thanks, Istvan Hello stevea, Yes, rsyslog is running, here is the output of the "service rsyslog status:" rsyslogd (pid 24579) is running...Thanks, Istvan logrotate might have recently run and moved your messages to messages.1 and then created the new but currently still empty "messages" file.

Syslog Watcher 4.8 is a maintenance update of the version 4.7.x.It contains several important bugfixes and internal improvements, but no new features.However, the version number was changed to 4.8 because it has updated copyright information and so that it will comply with the new version numbering scheme.Hello, Check and see if you permission are correct Here is what I have [ PM]root [log]# ls -ld /var/log drwxr-xr-x 33 root root 4096 2010-05-06 /var/log [ PM]root [log]# ls -l messages -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 93263 2010-05-06 messages [ PM]root [log]# ps -ef |grep sys |grep -v grep root 2346 1 0 ?

After a little research I found out that I forget to open the outbound firewall ports on my ESXi Server.
