Systemd Journal

Summary

Make Systemd Journal the new and only default syslog.

Owner

Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 18
  • Last updated:
  • Percentage of completion: 50%

Detailed Description

As of systemd v38+ systemd comes with it's own syslog named Journal which is enabled by default in F17 and onwards.

Having more then one log solution enabled and running by default makes absolute no sense and doing so only wastes people hw resources.

Benefit to Fedora

Single built in binary syslog solution used.

Scope

  • Disable rsyslog by default.

How To Test

Trigger a logging event and test systemd-journalctl with various command line switches.


User Experience

For the novice end users this has no noticeable effect other than a simplified command line to view logs.

For advanced users such as administrators they will need to enable and start rsyslog or syslog-ng to use many of the enterprise features those syslog solution currently provide over systemd journal.

Dependencies

Depends on the presence of systemd v38+ being installed which is the case for Fedora 17 and onwards.

Contingency Plan

re-enable rsyslog.

Documentation

  • It's recommended that documentation is updated to reflect usage of the native systemd journal command and it's configuration file

Release Notes

There shouldn't be anything we need to specifically say other than highlighting the change.
