ListenTCP or ListenSyslog

Contributor

Hi All,

Thanks a lot to this awesome community. I am using ListenTCP to stream all the logs from a port and sending it to hdfs.

Using listensyslog I know it can parse for syslog messages and forward but reject the messages which are not in syslog format.

Are there any major resoning why should I use listetcp over listensyslog besides above point?

Thanks

Dhieru

Re: ListenTCP or ListenSyslog

There are no real additional reasons. The key reason for ListenSyslog is that it understands syslog message framing on top of a raw TCP socket. Otherwise, it is basically not much different than ListenTCP or ListenUDP.
