Log Insights: Syslog server setup

If your database logs are available via syslog, you can use the db_log_syslog_server setting to have the collector listen for syslog messages from a remote server. This should be a local address like "" and it's recommended to use an unprivileged port number (1024 and up) to avoid running the collector as root.

Note that you need to use protocol RFC5424, with an unencrypted TCP connection. Due to syslog not being an authenticated protocol it is recommended to only use this integration over private networks.
