Quick thought.  Look at filters on the receiving end.  Might be easier.

Is is possible to configure a syslog-ng client to forward logs to a syslog-ng server based on file?

I am thinking of the following as an example:

destination named-LOGS {
udp(ip( port(555));
source named {
file("/var/log/named/bind.log" log_prefix("BIND-LOGS"));
log {

destination dhcpd-LOGS {
udp(ip( port(556));
source dhcpd {
file("/var/log/dhcpd/dhcp.log" log_prefix("DHCPD-LOGS"));
log {

In this example, I am sending each to the same destination IP address, although that is configurable, but each log file to a different port, and with a different log_prefix as well.

Does this OK,or is their a simpler way?

Many thanks,
