I have absolutely no idea, I was stuck to old methods for the services. From what I seem to understand above, those commands enable remote logging inside syslog, right ? This was the default for Solaris in the past, I believe. Or maybe we had to pass "-m". Anyway, if what you did above matches what I understood, then yes it's wise.

We also now have unix-dgram support for syslog in haproxy, but I noticed a lot of write errors under not-so-high loads (too small buffers), and we don't support stream sockets. The logging subsystem really needs serious lifting (with a dedicated task and buffer).

Thanks to both for the information.

Someone would care to send a small patch to add this into the architecture or configuration manual ?
