# $template <template name>, <template pattern> # (e.g.) $template logpattern,"%syslogpriority-text% %syslogfacility-text% %timegenerated% %HOSTNAME% %syslogtag%,%msg%\n" # "%xxx%" is the term called the property replacer.
The property replacers used by the above template have the following meanings:
# %syslogpriority-text% : syslog priority # %syslogfacilityt-text% : syslog facility # %timegenerated% : timestamp when the message was received # %HOSTNAME% : hostname # %syslogtag% : tag # %msg% : the message sent to syslog # The complete documentation can be found in the doc folder of the rsyslog distribution or online at http://www.rsyslog.com/doc
2.Bind a custom template to logs
If binding it to all the logs as default:
# $ActionFileDefaultTemplate <your template name> # (e.g.) $ActionFileDefaultTemplate logpattern # If binding it only to a specific log pattern: # <filter pattern> <action>;<your temlapte name> (e.g.) *.* /var/log/messages;logpattern
3.Restart rsyslog service
systemctl restart rsyslog.service
