I second the choice of syslog-ng. I got quite a few servers forwarding
to a central syslog server (with one warm-standby in case of failure)
which centrally logs into text files, but also to a Postgres database
(which is also redundant thanks to Slony). Remote servers tunnel syslog
via TCP over SSH to the central one. No problems at all, I'm very happy
with it.


It is said that the Internet is a public utility. As such, it is best
compared to a sewer. A big, fat pipe with a bunch of crap sloshing
against your ports.
