High availability support

Multiple AxoSyslog servers can be run in fail-over mode. The AxoSyslog application does not include any internal support for this, as clustering support must be implemented on the operating system level. A tool that can be used to create UNIX clusters is Heartbeat (for details, see this page).

Starting with AxoSyslog version 3.2, AxoSyslog clients can be configured to send the log messages to failover servers in case the primary syslog server becomes unaccessible. For details on configuring failover servers, see the description of the failover-servers() destination option in destination: Forward, send, and store log messages.
