I have a Linux based application server that exists in two copies on xhostA and xhostB.
I am getting their syslog output via a localhost syslog interface into the UF which is installed on those hosts.
I do not want to push individual inputs.conf files. So how to I get the appropriate host name for the syslog input?
If I leave host emtpy, I get 127.0.0.1 which is not helpful. When I set the hostname, it then is identical for both systems.
