    I like syslog too - but I got the results I wanted without much trouble, so I thought I would share.

    I run mattermost on centos 7, using systemd, which syslogs by default. In the service definition file I added

    SyslogIdentifier=mattermost
    StandardOutput=syslog
    StandardError=syslog

    (otherwise it syslog'd as "platform"), and then I turned off file logging in the web interface, so my config.json now has

    "EnableFile": false,

    in the "LogSettings" section.

    Otherwise, I imagine that leaving mattermost logging to "console" and wrapping it with a script that pipes output to logger might do the trick e.g.

    platform 2>&1 | logger -t mattermost

    Hope that helps - cheers!
