Re: How to send different log to multiple syslog server

Make sure that you point to the correct syslog levels in your Log handler's. Additionally make sure that in the rsyslog.conf you exclude the lower levels for sending syslog to the higher levels like this one:

daemon.notice;daemon.!=warning @syslog-receiver:1234

So in your case you would need @receiver2

daemon.debug;daemon.!=info @receiver1
