mythlogserver is a program added in the 0.26 release. Log messages generated by MythTV programs are sent to mythlogserver which distributes them based on the --syslog, --nodblog and --logpath command line options.

It is started automatically when existing MythTV programs start, typically mythbackend and mythfrontend. mythlogserver's logging options are inherited from the program that starts it.

See 0.26 specific sections in Logrotate All Applications and Simple rsyslog Configuration if they are used.

mythlogserver uses ZeroMQ libraries, which are included with the MythTV distribution.
