               A YANG Data Model for Syslog Configuration
                   draft-ietf-netmod-syslog-model-26

Abstract

   This document defines a YANG data model for the configuration of a
   syslog process.  It is intended this model be used by vendors who
   implement syslog in their systems.

1.  Introduction

   This document defines a YANG [RFC7950] configuration data model that
   may be used to configure the syslog feature running on a system.
   YANG models can be used with network management protocols such as
   NETCONF [RFC6241] to install, manipulate, and delete the
   configuration of network devices.

   The data model makes use of the YANG "feature" construct which allows
   implementations to support only those syslog features that lie within
   their capabilities.

   This module can be used to configure the syslog application
   conceptual layers as implemented on the target system.

   Essentially, a syslog process receives messages (from the kernel,
   processes, applications or other syslog processes) and processes
   them.  The processing may involve logging to a local file, and/or
   displaying on console, and/or relaying to syslog processes on other
   machines.  The processing is determined by the "facility" that
   originated the message and the "severity" assigned to the message by
