This plugin send jenkins logs to syslog.
The Jenkins Syslog Logger Plugin send the Jenkins logs to a Syslog Server.
- Network protocol:
- UDP is currently the only supported network protocol.
- TCP (RFC 6587: Transmission of Syslog Messages over TCP)
- Message delimitation is done with "\r\n" (aka "3.4.2. Non-Transparent-Framing"). Delimitation indicating the message size (aka "3.4.1. Octet Counting") is not implemented for the moment.
- TCP + SSL (RFC 5425: Transport Layer Security (TLS) Transport Mapping for Syslog)
- The certificate of the Syslog server must be trusted by the JVM, no mechanism has been implemented for the moment to provide a specific trust store and/or to disable certificate validation.
- Client Authentication is not supported for the moment.
- Message format: both RFC 3164: The BSD syslog Protocol and RFC 5424: The Syslog Protocol are supported .
The Jenkins Syslog Logger Plugin can be configured in the "Configure System" screen.
