Relaying Syslog

September 25, 2007

Enterprise networks managed by offshore Network operation centers often face issue of how to manage the alert in real time.

My idea:

Make a central Syslog Server – forward all logging from routers/pix/Vpn concentrators to Central Syslog. Make your syslog server in a way that it parse the incoming messages, cache’s them and then forward them to all of the NOC staff present in the office (or statically to a list of IP Addresses). NOC staff uses standalone Syslog application like Kiwi Syslog Deamon

Nice idea na ? what would you achieve – get rid of VNC or Web-based legacy syslog servers ; personal tick tick to an engineer when he’s sleeping at night duty with headphones on his head ; +++ way to low processing in control plane at router level.

how to do it: huh’ crash your head into the wall, try googling around ? okay not found – i have made an application code partially written in C++, partial code in Perl and attached with a DB of MySQL.

C++ :

(Listen to IF_INET, bind port 514 for reading syslog messages)

(Parse the incoming message, separate the IP address, Priority Code, text)


(takes input of Priority Code, Text & IP Address of sender from C++ code)

(process a fake raw socket with a source IP of sender :: why – think about it)

(prepare the list of NOC staff IPs from DB/TXT)

(merge the fake ip,space,<pritority>message and send it to the destination syslog receiver on 514 destination).

there you go – relaying syslog server is ready – usually i don’t sell my idea but for you its free – need code too ? email me..

What about my Romanticism ?

You Are A Romantic Realist

You tend to be grounded when it comes to romance.
Sure, you can fall hard… but only for someone you’ve gotten to know.
And once you’re in love, you can be a total romantic goofball…
But you’d never admit it to your friends!
Are You Romantic or Realistic?

How normal I Am ?

You Are 50% Normal

While some of your behavior is quite normal…
Other things you do are downright strange
You’ve got a little of your freak going on
But you mostly keep your weirdness to yourself
How Normal Are You?
