How to disable collectors redirect logs to syslog

Hello, I noted that graylog collector in linux platform would redirect its logs to /var/log/message.

[root@vas3 bin]# cat /var/log/messages | grep graylog
Jun 6 09:36:50 vas3 graylog-collector-sidecar: time=“2018-06-06T09:36:50+08:00” level=error msg="[UpdateRegistration] Failed to report collector status to server: Put http://ABC.COM:9000/api/plugins/org.graylog.plugins.collector/collectors/741f2851-6d12-475a-a354-3bdf361ea9ea: read tcp>ABC.COM:9000: read: connection reset by peer"

This will trigger my alarm system because of the string “level=error”. Is it possible to disable log redirection to syslog, or downgrade the severity no higher than “warning”


No, that’s currently not possible.

You could filter messages from the Graylog Collector Sidecar in your syslog daemon, if you absolutely don’t want to be informed about errors.

Example with rsyslog:
