GitHub Enterprise uses
rsyslog to forward system and application logs to the server you specify in the Management Console settings.
Enabling log forwarding
- On the Management Console settings page, in the left sidebar, click Monitoring.
- Select Enable log forwarding.
- In the Server address field, type the address of the server to which you'd like to forward logs.
- In the Protocol dropdown menu, select the protocol to use to communicate with the log server.
Warning: If you use the TCP or RELP protocols, a misconfigured or unreachable log server may cause your GitHub Enterprise appliance to become unresponsive. We recommend using UDP and testing changes in a non-production environment first.
If you run into issues with log forwarding, contact GitHub Enterprise support and attach the output file from
http(s)://[hostname]/setup/diagnostics to your email.
