Thank you for the response!

I just completed setting syslog-ng and now have the log files sending via syslog to Log Siphon now.

I agree, that it would be great to have it built into the framework directly.

Have a good day!

There is almost certainly a better way to do it within the Bro framework itself, but another option might be to use built in (?) rsyslog:


About halfway down there are instructions for using rsyslog's imfile module to syslog Bro's logs...

Is there a way to have Bro v2.1 send via Syslog along with a log file?
