#7973 Finding a replacement for epylog
Closed: Initiative Worthy 6 months ago by smooge. Opened 2 years ago by smooge.

The epylog process was used to monitor logs in Fedora. It is no longer maintained and does not work in F30+ or RHEL-8. A new way to review logs generated by systems is needed.

We should probibly make some kind of requirements document here.

  • work with rsyslog central logging
  • show exceptions/items that aren't known

Talked with kernel.org people and they are using greylog as the replacement for epylog. It is a rather large infrastructure investure to do. The other tools I have seen use elasticsearch and would require multiple servers or for us to set it up in amazon and send our PII there.

We are going to close this and fold it into the future data logging initiative.
