syslog-ng Open Source Edition


6.6.1. nodejs() source options

The nodejs() driver has the following options.

ip() or localip()

Type: string

Description: The IP address to bind to. By default, syslog-ng OSE listens on every available interface. Note that this is not the address where messages are accepted from.

If you specify a multicast bind address and use the udp transport, syslog-ng OSE automatically joins the necessary multicast group. TCP does not support multicasting.

port() or localport()

Type: number
Default: 9003

Description: The port number to bind to.
