SyslogLogger issues

Hi guys,

I’m using syslogLogger to log to syslog in my project. There was
issues getting this to work, but I found a workaround that has worked
until now. Here is my setup:


config.logger = RAILS_DEFAULT_LOGGER =‘rails’)

This works and syslog is passed the correct rails (if I run syslog
with debug I see the rails setting) setting but the only way that I
can ‘catch’ the info sent to syslog is by using the user.* like this


user.* /tmp/production.log

I tried this

rails.* But that does not work… The funny part is that I add
rails.none for the /var/log/messages logger that removes all the
entries for the rails app!! ?

*.info;mail.none;authpriv.none;cron.none;rails.none /var/log/messages

Now I’m getting ready to start more than one rails app per. server…
using user.* will catch log information from both apps.

Anyone using syslogLogger on Redhat with any insight?
