2015-10-09 20:30:42 Jamie Strandboge summary please make /etc/rsyslog.d a writable path please add syslog support to snappy config ubuntu-core
2015-10-09 20:42:25 Jamie Strandboge description You cannot currently customize logging on snappy systems. /etc/systemd/journald.conf is not writable and neither is /etc/rsyslog.d. In my case, I wanted to do remote logging to a syslog server. systemd does allow remote logging, but not in the syslog format and Ubuntu currently doesn't include journal-remote. If /etc/rsyslog.d were world-writable, people could setup remote logging or any number of other configuration options by dropping a file in there. Some of these configuration options could even be exposed via snappy config ubuntu-core some day if they were popular enough. You cannot currently customize logging on snappy systems. /etc/systemd/journald.conf is not writable and neither is /etc/rsyslog.d. In my case, I wanted to do remote logging to a syslog server. systemd does allow remote logging, but not in the syslog format and Ubuntu currently doesn't include journal-remote. I'm not sure which logging options should be exposed via snappy config, but it seems that remote logging would be a great first step. Eg, perhaps something along the lines of: $ snappy config ubuntu-core ... config: ubuntu-core: logging: remote-syslog: 10.0.0.1 This could then create /etc/rsyslog.d/snappy-logging.conf with: *.*;auth,authpriv.none @(z9)10.0.0.1
