I have a CentOS machine running rabbitmq-server v2.2.0-1.el5, and rabbitmq is outputting it's log messages to various files under /var/log/rabbitmq.

If there anyway to configure rabbitmq to tell it to redirect its messages to syslog instead ?

That is a very old version of RabbitMQ that has lots of bugs which have since been fixed. – Michael Dillon Jan 29 '12 at 7:08

AFAIK there is no way for RabbitMQ to log directly to syslog. But you could process the log files RabbitMQ generates and write them to syslog, e. g. with rsyslog's imfile module.

The imfile module is just what I was looking for. Thanks. – pwan Dec 19 '11 at 20:23
