Subject: syslog consolidation

I have had no grief from msyslog, it works a treat.

Eventlog to syslog comes in handy if you have some of that other, other
white meat also,

I use metalog on most of my systems. It does a nice job of splitting logs
based on the program that sent the message as well as regex matching, to put
anything matching "(failed|invalid)\s+(password|login|authentication)" for
example into a single file. It will also buffer messages in memory if you
want to be a little more efficient on your disk accesses. The biggest
problem with it is that it only works as a local daemon. 

So, to log all of my router/switch messages off the UDP listener, I also run
syslog-ng on one of my machines. The two do peacefully coexist, I only have
syslog-ng listening for udp traffic without it opening up a local socket.
I'm barely using any of the features of syslog-ng, but at least it has
granular enough configuration that I only run the part of it that I want to.
And that is always a good thing.
