Description

Internal TrueNAS support ticket GYB-366-93463

Client needs to log the FQDN to syslog-ng

Snip from the above ticket:

**
For context our naming convention is in the form nas01{a,b}.<rack>.<dc>.squiz.co.uk.
So every node logs as nas01a or nas01b.
There is also a NAT firewall between the NAS and the log server, so they all appear to come from the same IP.

It's essentially impossible for us to differentiate which log came from which node. **

This feature seems pretty low risk.

Add a checkbox that allows syslog-ng to use the FQDN instead of short hostname

Ticket: #17241

This has been requested once in a while, by making it opt in
it doesn't change/break existing setups.

This will be a GUI change, I'll add a checkbox to enable the behavior. I can patch the customer's system in the meantime.

The screenshot for system -> advanced changes with a new checkbox that when checked causes syslog-ng to use the fqdn in the log files.
