I am trying to find another logging application that will allow me to log to CouchDb.

I am currently using rsyslog which is fine for logging to a mysql but doesnt seem to want to allow me to log couchdb or even let me make calls to a external script that does the calls.

embobo was correct. You can log to an external program with rsyslog. I think you dropped that attempt too soon. You should add more info to that question. – Matthew Flaschen Aug 4 '10 at 13:10
I tried to wits end to get that working , no matter how much i tried i couldn't get it to work (i.e. to call a external app) – RC1140 Aug 5 '10 at 8:29

syslog-ng might fulfill the job, it's very configurable and with a bit of imagination can usually be tuned to do anything. It's also available in Ubuntu's package repository so it is simple to install.
