Name LogHost
Description A central collection point for syslog reports (others could be added as necessary). These are filtered and filed in various ways (again, extensibly).
Due to DP and RIP concerns, access is only available to computing staff; again this could be extended, but would require some work.
Unit Infrastructure
End Users Computing Staff
Software rsyslog
Hardware One (currently) server: tycho
Risk More than Two People
Review Status No University Equivalent
Review Details Due to DP and RIP concerns it would not be appropriate to use a generally-accessible service.
Dependencies None
Redundancy Currently none. It would be straightforward to add a second loghost. Note that logs are mirrored but are deliberately NOT backed up to tape, for DP/FOI reasons.
