syslog2dlf(1) convert syslog log files to DLF




This script uses the Lire::Syslog module to create a DLF representation of the syslog log files. It can process all the syslog log formats supported by that module.


To process a log as produced by syslog:

 $ syslog2dlf < syslog.log

syslog2dlf will be rarely used on its own, but is more likely called by lr_log2report:

 $ lr_log2report syslog < /var/log/syslog.log
