<!-- F-TICKS syslog destination. -->
<appender name="IDP_FTICKS_GEANT" class="ch.qos.logback.classic.net.SyslogAppender">
<syslogHost>  IP.ADDRESS.OFTHE.COLLECTOR  </syslogHost>
<port>514</port>
<facility>AUTH</facility>
<suffixPattern>[%thread] %logger %msg</suffixPattern>
</appender>
<logger name="Shibboleth-FTICKS" level="ALL" additivity="false">
<appender-ref ref="IDP_FTICKS_GEANT"/>
</logger>

2) Restart the service with the following command:


export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/default-java
