Well, it certainly depends on the features that you want enabled on your platform. The syslog-ng configure script allows tailor-made configurations at a pretty granular level. But I guess it would make sense to compile syslog-ng for your use-case.
syslog-ng has not - yet - been optimized too much for the embedded use-case, but it is generally slim package implemented in C, so it should be possible. The dependency I'd be afraid the most is glib, which has grown pretty fat in recent times. There an earlier release could be enough (2.14 should be ok).

Hi All,

My requirement is to send the log messages to remote log server securely (with TLS).

The project which I am implementing is on embedded systems. So the space is very important.

Please let me know the latest stable version of syslog-ng which can be used for this.
Also please let me know the mandatory dependency libraries required.

Thanks in advance.
