Need suggestion for SysLog with Node.js


I have just npm install node-syslog but it doesn’t work.

I have a syslog server (IP address , and local0).

And I’m looking for a syslog module to help me post the message to syslog. But I don’t know which one I should use. Please give me some suggestion. thanks.

oh.. if there is a good syslog parser (node.js), please let me know too. :)

without any issues.

But when I’m in your situation I run:

npm search $(what im looking for)

I ran npm search syslog and this is my output, hope it helps.
