My problem is probably due to a syslog or java configuration setting
but was hoping one of you could point me in the right direction.
The java process is writing to /var/log/mylogfile.log, and it is using
the local5 facility to do so. This log file is not written to at all
if I take this line out of syslog.conf:
I just can't figure out why log messages are not forwarded to the
remote syslog-ng host. Anyone have an idea how to troubleshoot this?
