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 ?

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.
