[syslog-ng] sending log messages to graylog

Dear Rodney Bizzell,

I would kindly ask you to either start a new thread or reply to with a
relevant information in the mailing list. Otherwise it is really hard to
send follow up to your and others questions.

As to per your question. Probably you want to forward your other logs to
where syslog-ng is running :) and configure syslog-ng to receive those
other logs, and connect the destination that already can send to graylog
with the source that can and does receive other logs.

In practice:

@version: 3.18
@include "scl.conf"

source my_s { default-network-driver(); };

destination graylog { #graylog destination

log {  source(my_s); destination(graylog); };

I hope this helps.

Best regards,
Peter Kokai
