Projects / Rxlogd


Rxlogd is a receive-only syslog server (collector) that can coexist with sysklogd. It features simplicity, ease of use, and a built-in DNS cache for high performance. The intended audience is users of enterprise systems stuck with sysklogd, or administrators who don't need more complex syslog server solutions.
