Troubleshooting Linux using syslog.conf
Different Linux packages have their own configuration files for Linux network configuration and troubleshooting. Due to this reason Linux system administration becomes daunting. However most of Linux applications use syslog utility for handling errors and status messages for the files stored in /var/log directory path. Linux troubleshooting for each Linux core like fedora, redhat and ubuntu etc becomes easy using syslog file. It is very useful to know that all applications do not display errors and status messages on computer screen. Linux log server contains Linux syslog file and logrotate utility makes it easier handle computer network troubleshooting same like windows network troubleshooting.
