    What are the different between rsyslog on Centos7 and Ubuntu? I really hard to identify it.

    Thank you for this article.

    A little modification in lines of forward configurations, you have a space character between characters . and *:

    *. *  @@ => *.*  @@
    auth. *  @@ => auth.*  @@

    Why did you choose to ignore the whole block of information above your single line forwarding rule? This client rule will hang if the syslog server isn’t answering.
