I need to setup a VIP / floating IP that network devices will send their syslog messages to. The idea behind the VIP is to have a highly available setup in an attempt to minimize the amount of logs lost as a result of the syslog server being down.
This is going to be done in a CentOS 7 environment so I figure I can either have
rsyslog listen for remote messages on the floating address or setup syslog-ng on an alternate port (such as
5514) solely for receiving the network messages.
My research tells me that Pacemaker should be able to do this but I am not quite sure how. Any tips on the actual how part would be greatly appreciated.
