The syslog-ng Premium Edition application loads every available module during startup.
To load a module that is not loaded automatically, include the following statement in the syslog-ng PE configuration file:
Note the following points about the @module statement:
The @module statement is a top-level statement, that is, it cannot be nested into any other statement. Usually it is used immediately after the @version statement.
Every @module statement loads a single module: loading multiple modules requires a separate @module statement for every module.
In the configuration file, the @module statement of a module must be earlier than the module is used.
To disable loading every module automatically, set the autoload-compiled-modules global variable to 0 in your configuration file:
@define autoload-compiled-modules 0
Note that in this case, you have to explicitly load the modules you want to use.
