AP Remote Logging

    Does anyone know of any syslog-ng chicanery to log AP messages into folders named after ap-name?  TAC tells me that is not possible by way of any controller configs.  Just curious if anyone has any suggestions.

    Is this for Instant or for Controller?

    Can you explain what the ultimate goal is, as having the logs for all APs under a controller or Instant VC usually makes more sense as the wireless system behaves like a single entity?


    My syslog-ng is configured to log messages in a separate file by source IP, which is something trivial to set up:

    source s_net { udp(port(514)); tcp(); tcp(port(10000)); };
    destination d_remote { file("/var/log/remote/$HOST-$YEAR$MONTH$DAY.log"); };
    log { source (s_net); destination (d_remote); };

    With $HOST, it will take the host-name via reverse DNS when available or IP if it is not available. The $YEAR$MONTH$DAY results in a log file per day.
