Attachment in E-Mail-Report (syslog-ng)

  • Hi,

    is it possible to add the logfile of syslog-ng to the list of e-mail reports? My pfsense-box acts as a syslog-server for several devices.

    I tried to add this file via the command:
    /usr/bin/gzip -c /var/syslog-ng/default.log

    As this file is quite large I have to add it in zipped format and so it makes no sense to send it "inline"

    You really don't want your firewall to be a host for syslog of other devices. Spin up a VM and use something else as your remote syslog.
