    Your last item regarding mysqlimport is not accurate. Two problems:
    1) < character is not used
    2) mysqlimport is for importing text files (csv) and the file name needs to be the table name. The program will automatically use the string in front of the period as the table name…so it errors out because it can't find a table named rsyslog in the database rsyslog.
