I'm having a problem using syslog drains as described in https://devcenter.heroku.com/articles/logging.
To summarize, I have an Ubuntu 10.04 instance on EC2 that is running
rsyslogd. I've also set up the security groups as they describe, and added a syslog drain using a command like
heroku drains:add syslog://host1.example.com:514.
I can send messages from the Heroku console to my
rsyslogd instance via
nc. I see them appear in the log file, so I know there isn't a firewall/security group issue. However, Heroku does not seem to be forwarding log messages to the server that
heroku drains lists. I would expect to see HTTP requests, Rails messages, etc.
Is there something else I can try to do to figure this out? I'm new to
rsyslogd, so I could easily be missing something.
