Using Syslog as source in Flume

I wanted to figure out how to use Flume for receiving Syslog message. So i tried 2 different configurations one is using Syslog server on TCP port and other on UDP port. This is the flume configuration for listening on UDP port Copy the flumesyslogudp.properties file in the conf directory of your flume server and use following command to start flume server

bin/flume-ng agent --conf conf --conf-file conf/flumesyslogudp.properties --name agent1 
-Dflume.root.logger=DEBUG,console
Or you can configure flume to listen on TCP port. Only difference is the source type is syslogtcp instead of syslogudp

bin/flume-ng agent --conf conf --conf-file conf/flumesyslogtcp.properties --name agent1 
-Dflume.root.logger=DEBUG,console
