sslogger.conf — sslogger(5) configuration file


     sslogger.conf  is a simple file containing  values to be read by
     sslogger.  The syntax is simply as follows:

             # comment

      Note that blank lines are ignored, no whitespace are permitted before
      the token, after the token, or before the value. Lines which begin with
      a # are considered  comments and ignored.



Default Configuration File

Example Configuration File

Configuration file /etc/sslogger.d/sslogger.conf:

# Log output of all commands, even non interactive (1 is true). Default 0

# Minimum Comment length in chars
#an entry of 0 will skip reason for asking for a shell

# Maximum Comment Length in chars written to syslog                
#Comment Length in the session log file  is currently unlimited                                

# To allow normal users replay access to log files they create, Set below to 1

# slogd server name or ip.
# If commented out or empty remote log collection is disabled

#slogd service port

#slogd auth type. Must match slogd server tls_authtype
# Current options are "x509" or "anon".
# Setting to x509 requires x509 tls certs
# to be generated and pushed to all clients. See the mkSlogCerts command

# When using a slogd server, and a sslogger session is over, and logs are
# properly transferred to slogd server, delete the local log file.
# Setting to 1 will enable keeping of all local log file.

# Policy for when a connection to a slogd server is unavailable or
# unexpectedly terminated. If set to 1, sslogger will terminate if
# connection is broken to slogd server, and session will die if it
# cannot connect to the remote slogd server at start up.
# If set to 0, local logging will be used when we can not contact remote
# server or when a network connection to the slogd server is broken
