We consider a wide class of linear stochastic problems driven off the equilibrium by a multiplicative asymmetric force. The force breaks detailed balance, maintained otherwise, thus producing entropy. The large deviation function of the entropy production in the system is calculated explicitly. The general result is illustrated using an example of a polymer immersed in a gradient flow and subject to thermal fluctuations.
