I’m interested in trying out the journal-upload and journal-remote features of systemd on NixOS. Here is the systemd documentation for these tools:
The journal-upload.conf and journal-remote.conf files exist in /run/current-system/systemd/share/factory/etc/systemd but I don’t see how they can be edited. I see the /run/current-system/systemd/lib/systemd/ binaries for the tools (which can be run directly but are not included in in the PATH) and /run/current-system/systemd/example/systemd/system/ contains service files but they’re only examples so I guess I’ll try converting them to nixos systemd service configs to install them manually…
The most substantial thing I can find on integrating these tools into NixOS is a comment on a development discussion from @arianvp on this forum: The papercut thread - post your small annoyances/confusions here which is from a year ago and mentions work on a module to implement these as options in NixOS. If this were implemented, it would be exactly what I’m looking for! I’m wondering if @arianvp or anyone else knows what is the status of this work, or if anyone knows if there is intended/existing way for these tools to be used in NixOS? If I get something working I’ll post it back here. Thanks!
