syslog-ng php-syslog-ng

Phpsyslog-ng is a web interface based on a php script that permit to read the logs generated by a local server or remote machines. The logs are first sent from the local or remote machines to a log collector named syslog-ng and then forwarded into a mysql database.

Please note that syslog-ng is required to use phpsyslog-ng and installing syslog-ng will removed syslogd which is installed on a Linux machine by default.

Some of the advantages of syslog-ng compared to syslogd are the following:

- the log messages can be sent over TCP instead of UDP for more reliability.
- the log messages between syslog-ng hosts can be sent encrypted.
- the log messages can be filtered based on their criticity level or their content.
- the syslog-ng tool itself is very customizable.
