I've just started to use rsyslog on an ubuntu 14 server. I am using it as a server to send logs from my firewalls / nas / routers etc.
New to all this so could do with some advice. Firstly, how to properly setup rsyslog to run as a server? I have it working, receiving information from the other devices but is there a better way to set this up other than the default. What about storing it in a mysql database?
Secondly, I am looking for a web interface to manage it all. Preferably something clean, easy to use and realtime(if thats possible) I have had a look at logzilla which looks perfect but is no longer free. So what would people recommend?
