|Type:||no-multi-line, syslog-protocol, threaded|
Description: Flags influence the behavior of the destination driver.
no-multi-line: The no-multi-line flag disables line-breaking in the messages: the entire message is converted to a single line.
syslog-protocol: The syslog-protocol flag instructs the driver to format the messages according to the new IETF syslog protocol standard (RFC5424), but without the frame header. If this flag is enabled, macros used for the message have effect only for the text of the message, the message header is formatted to the new standard. Note that this flag is not needed for the syslog driver, and that the syslog driver automatically adds the frame header to the messages.
threaded: The threaded flag enables multithreading for the destination. For details on multithreading, see Multithreading and scaling in syslog-ng OSE.
The file destination uses multiple threads only if the destination filename contains macros.
