This is even better, specific to application. But seems like, something is missing.
Am I using correct syntax ?
[root@test-servs ~]# cat /etc/rsyslog.conf | grep ercapi
ercapi.*                                                /var/adm/xymessages
[root@test-servs ~]# logger -p ercapi.info  "XY 6990 - ERC API on $(hostname) is restarted"
logger: unknown facility name: ercapi.
[root@test-servs ~]#
