plugin to use MongoDB as backend.
Status: unmaintained: code was already pushed upstream.
tested in ubuntu 10.04 and ubuntu 10.10
in your /etc/rsyslog.conf, together with other modules: $ModLoad ommongodb # provides mongodb support
then in your /etc/rsyslog.d (check your distribution way to organize the configuration..) you create a file 10-mongodb.conf with the following content:
the format for the driver is :ommongodb:ip:db:collection;StdMongoDBFmt
if you want to change what is logged in the db, the template, you must change the source code since the keys are hardcoded
$template StdMongoDBFmt,"%msg%%syslogfacility%%HOSTNAME%%syslogpriority%" . :ommongodb:127.0.0.1,syslog,logs;StdMongoDBFmt
TODO we must ensure that the collection is a capped collection refactor my code :-)
