This article provides information when some Kiwi Syslog message containing double quotes. The text need to be filtered.

An example message:

message number="234"


All Kiwi Syslog versions


As the text based filters use double quotes in order to identify the required text in a syslog message it is not possible to use the double quotes inside the message text in a simple or complex filter.


To overcome this, it is necessary to use a regular expression filter with the \(exclude symbol) in combination with the ASCII character set hexadecimal value.


In order to filter on the example above:

"message number=\x22234\x22"

The \x22 is the escape sequence for the double quote symbol, x indicates the ASCII hexadecimal code ".


To obtain other ASCII values, see for a complete listing of the hexadecimal values for each of the ASCI characters.
