Re: Metron_agent setup_syslog_forwarder.sh should be split in a different job

Hi Hector ,

Instead of using metron to configure rsyslog , have you already tried using
syslog-release <https://github.com/cloudfoundry/syslog-release> ??

Thanks

Hello,

Currently we are using the feature of metron_agent to configure rsyslog to
forward all the logs to a central syslog endpoint[1]

This is great, but I wonder if this feature should be really part of the
job "metron_agent".

Our case is that we want to configure this feature in ALL our VMs, even
the ones that are not purely CF components (nozzles, database brokers,
etc). But in order to configure it consistently, we need to install
metron_agent, which is not being used in that VM.

Installing metron_agent when the only goal is collaterally configure
rsyslog s completely unnecessary.

My proposal is that we split this to a new job, something like
"rsyslog_forwarder".

What do you think? We can do a PR if that is OK.
