Re: rsyslogd logging to MySQL Database
Well, here, on the boat in ibiza, on my blackberry, I don't have the exact name, but we use a php-syslog software, and everything is explained.
We consolidate linux, freebsd and cisco/juniper equipments.

Hmm, okay, that is why I want to do it this way. We were thinking about
using Splunk, but I don't like the flat file format that is uses to
store its database. That and I am not too keen on the searching syntax
that it uses, so would much prefer using a MySQL database for this. Not
only for the easier searching, but for the ability to modify and expand
any web-based log searching interface that we choose to implement.
If you can point me to a decent get-started guide on how to do this
(what you used my help and would be greatly appreciated), that would be
