Subject: reading /var/log/messages
We just set up splunk in our environment and have made all our
/var/log/messages owned by root:splunk mode 640 so that splunk can read and
index these files. I was thinking I could add xymon user to splunk group
and that would allow xymon to read /var/log/messages as well, but it doesn't
seem to be working. I can read /var/log/messages as the xymon user but the
msgs web page is still showing
Cannot open logfile /var/log/messages : Permission denied
Any ideas on what else I can do to allow xymon to get these logs?
