Memory leak : What is the (R)syslog facility used by fail2ban

fail2ban_logoblue-plus-sign-hi   rsyslog


Looks like I can’t remember the following, and this info is not so easy to find on the web, so here it is !

The syslog or rsyslog facility used by Fail2Ban when using the

logtarget = SYSLOG

statement in the fail2ban configuration file is : daemon !

Therefore the fail2ban output will be sent to the daemon.log file, or any other file that will be configured within the rsyslog.conf file.
