Purpose: To replace our aging syslog software and accompanying OS with a current OS and more flexible log collection software.
Impact: During the transition from the old server to the new, there may be a brief loss of log entries as syslog traffic starts flowing to the new server. We anticipate a loss of no more than a few minutes worth of lost log data. We will be transferring the IP address for the current musysapps server to the new, so no configuration changes should be necessary on clients currently sending logs.
Affected: This will affect any systems that are currently configured to send log data to musysapps.
