Overview

This sample application enables a remote syslog service that will send syslog messages to a remote server, as configured in prj.conf. See https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5424 and https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5426 for more details about syslog protocol over UDP.

The source code for this sample application can be found at: samples/net/syslog_net.

For configuring the remote IPv6 syslog server, set the following variables in prj.conf file:

CONFIG_LOG_BACKEND_NET=y
CONFIG_LOG_BACKEND_NET_SERVER="[2001:db8::2]:514"

192.0.2.1:514
192.0.2.42
[2001:db8::1]:514
[2001:db8::2]
2001:db::42
