syslog timestamp format
Thu, 31 Jan 2002 12:00:44 -0500
Assuming iptables uses klogd to log its messages to /var/log/messages, is
there a way to specifiy the format of the timestamp that klogd prepends to a
log message? The logging daemon is prepending a timestamp of "MMM dd
hh:mm:ss", but I need to have the "yyyy" in the timestamp as well.
Additionally, does anyone know how to get iptables to log to a logging
facility other than "kernel"? I am aware of the ULOG target, but I have read
that ULOG should not be used as a matching target for any significant amount
of logging. Anybody have experience using the ULOG target, good or bad?
I'm using klogd 1.4.1 and iptables 1.2.5 on a RH 7.2 box w/ kernel 2.4.17.
Thanks for any help,
