    Sending a message from linux to NPM



      Do you know how configure a linux server to send a message to NPM (Syslog) ?


        • Re: Sending a message from linux to NPM

          Assuming that you already have your linux system configured to syslog to your NPM server, you can use the command line "logger" to send anything you want into syslog from a script.


          What you would do is write a script on the linux box that looks like this:


          • #!/bin/bash
          • logger This is a message from a linux system


          Here's the man page for logger: logger(1) - Linux manual page There are more options for logger.


          Then on the NPM server, you can check if "This is a message from a linux system" appears in your syslog area.


          If it doesn't appear there, then you may need to configure /etc/syslog.conf or /etc/rsyslog.conf to correctly send to your NPM server.  Remember that syslog needs restarting on the linux box when you edit the config file.
