    Orion support for Kiwi Syslog "Orginal Address=" tag

    savell

      Given the recent kiwi announcement, I thought that it might be nice if Orion supported the syslog message tag that Kiwi Syslog (as an option) inserts into a forwarded syslog message.

      There is a setting in Kiwi syslog server that inserts “Original Address=” tag, followed by the IP address in syslog messages that are forwarded to Orion.

      At the moment all these messages are inserted by Orion into the syslog table, using the Kiwi syslog sever IP address. It would be great if Orion had the ability to recognise this inserted tag, and log the message to the database using the original source address provided in the message.

      Dave.
