Transform::Alert::Input::Syslogd - Transform alerts from an internal Syslog daemon
# In your configuration
Interval 5 # you should set this to be very short
# See Net::Syslogd->new
LocalPort 514 # default
# Timeout - don't bother
# <Template> tags...
This input type will spawn a syslog listener and process each message through the input template engine. If it finds a match, the results of the match are sent to one or more outputs, depending on the group configuration.
See Net::Syslogd for a list of the ConnOpts section parameters. The Timeout parameter is basically ignored, since get_message calls will use a timeout of 0 (ie: instant). This is so that the main daemon doesn't bother waiting for messages during each heartbeat. As such, the Interval setting should be set very low. (But, not zero; that would be unwise...)
