After making this change, save and exit the file. Restart the “rsyslogd” service ( 'systemctl restart rsyslog.service' or 'service rsyslog restart' in case of RHEL6.x and older) to make the changes come into effect. NOTE: Keep in mind that this would generate a lot of logs and "/var" may get filled up fast, so after the diagnosis make sure to revert the changes.
