Command to tell which version of Syslog-Ng is running?

Hello, looking to upgrade but want to check which version I am running.

  • Good afternoon,

    To check which version of Syslog-ng PE you are running you can use either of the following two commands:

    /opt/syslog-ng/sbin/syslog-ng -v

    /opt/syslog-ng/sbin/syslog-ng --version

    Once done, you should see the following, as well as additional information though only the following is pertinent for finding the version:

    -bash-4.2# /opt/syslog-ng/sbin/syslog-ng --version
    syslog-ng-premium-edition 7 (7.0.21)
    Config version: 7.0
    Installer-Version: 7.0.21

    If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to reach out as we would be more than happy to be of assistance!
