The latest syslog-ng release, version 3.3 can be used to implement part of the “CEE over syslog” standard. BalaBit’s patterndb technology was able to extract information from syslog messages already for a long time. With this release JSON output was added, which means, that the extracted information can be output as JSON data. What it means in practice, that syslog-ng is able to parse log messages, and output the extracted fields in the form required by CEE.
