    Send tasks logs to syslog server

    Hey, I configured logs to be sent to a syslog server using this tutorial *.* @@your_syslog_server_ip:514 but I noticed that logs generated by tasks are not being sent. How to do so? I suppose this can be related also to Proxmox VE's tasks.

    I can't seem to get remote logging to work on Debian12 LXC containers. FQDN works on Qemu servers but the same rsyslog.conf file does not give full name from LXC container. Any idea what's going on here..?

    [SOLVED] Proxmox-backup logs

    Hi, I just noticed that /var/log/proxmox-backup is using quite a lot of space. It seems as log rotation is not explicitly defined in logrotate. Is there any other setting that is taking care of this log rotation or can I just use logrotate as for any other logs? I didn’t find anything related...

    PVE: REST API vs cmdline commands vs web-GUI

    Does the web-gui (6.2-11) produce some sort of "command log" for the (presumed?) commands it runs upon receiving a command from the web-based user? I'm a command-line oriented sysadmin, and I'd eventually like to be able to manage all things without the web gui, or at least using it minimally.
