How rules, filters, and actions work
Apply rules in the order you want the Kiwi Syslog Server NG to receive them. When a rule applies to a message, Kiwi Syslog Server NG matches the message against each filter in the rule, starting with the top filter.
If each condition in the filter returns
TRUE, Kiwi Syslog Server NG matches the message against the next filter in that rule.
If a condition in the filter returns
FALSE, processing stops for that rule and Kiwi Syslog Server NG applies the next rule to the message.
If the messages passes all filters within a rule, Kiwi Syslog Server NG performs each action in order, starting with the action at the top of the list. When Kiwi Syslog Server NG completes the actions within a rule, and then applies the next rule.
When you install Kiwi Syslog Server NG, it automatically creates a rule called Default that applies two actions to each message:
- Displays each message on the Kiwi Syslog NG user display.
