To pipe Serv-U logs to a syslog server, use the imfile module on a Linux system to pass the logs to a syslog server.

Use the following sample to modify your /etc/rsyslog.conf file:

# Monitor Serv-U's files

$ModLoad imfile
$InputFileName /Full_Path_To_Serv-U_Log_File
$InputFileTag tag1:
$InputFileStateFile stat-file1
$InputFileSeverity info
$InputFileFacility local7
