You can configure a Syslog-based Access Log Publisher using the dsconfig tool. We recommend that you use syslog locally on localhost and use syslog-ng to send the syslog messages to remote syslog servers.

Because syslog implementations differ by vendor, please review your particular vendor’s syslog configuration.

  • Use dsconfig to create a log publisher of type syslog-based-access.
    If you are using the dsconfig tool in interactive mode, the menu item for Syslog Facility is an advanced property, which can be exposed by typing a (for "show advanced properties") on the Syslog-Based Access Log Publisher menu.
    $ bin/dsconfig create-log-publisher \ 
    --publisher-name "syslog-access" \ 
    --type syslog-based-access \ 
    --set syslog-facility:4 \
    --set enabled:true
