Syslog-ng send raw json

Posted on Saturday, March 25, 2017


I recently had to get up to speed on setting up and using syslog-ng. which I wrote up on how to install it and get it logging a simple python app.  See http://www.whiteboardcoder.com/2017/03/syslog-ng-install-and-configure.html [1] I also did a write up on how to get it to listen on a port http://www.whiteboardcoder.com/2017/03/syslog-ng-listen-on-port.html [2]


In this post I am going to go over overcoming a few issues in getting raw json log outputs to a file.

I am going to do a simple install of syslog-ng on Ubuntu 16.04 and do a little setup to capture some logs.  I am going to output some example logs using a simple python program.

I am going to go over how to use you gmail account with Alfresco share.  So that Alfreso can send out emails like invites etc…

But remember gmail has limits I have a paid gmail account and I think its limited to 1000 outgoing emails a day?  I think a free one is limited to 500.   More than enough for testing or even for a small company.
