syslog-ng configurator

syslog-ng configurator


This is a simple syslog-ng config generator application to create performance optimized configuration.
The generated configuration is suited for syslog-ng OSE 3.3 or higher.

Features:
Easy configurable TCP and UDP based sources
Configurable performance related settings
The generated configuration can be saved or sent via email
Simple overview and warnings about the results and possible bottlenecks
Detailed description about the formulas
Selectable destinations

Background information:
Because I like syslog-ng and my hobby is Android programming I wanted to create some interesting stuff that works on Android but related to syslog-ng.
Finally - because I have some experience how to create performance optimized syslog-ng configuration - I decided to make a special syslog-ng configurator application that can calculate the necessary syslog-ng settings and generate a sample syslog-ng configuration. So this was just my hobby project, but because the result seemed to be useful, I decided to share with you.

Feel free to change or extend the configuration and don't forget, the generated configuration is just a sample and the real performance depends on your hardware and other environment settings.

Awesome app Thanks for sharing this. It's made my job a little bit easier. Would love to see you add check boxes for adding destinations and having a section for creating filters. Keep up the good work!
