1 Hi,
3 Does anyone have decent experience with sysloggers other than syslog-ng, and
4 be willing to share experiences?
6 I'm especially interested in some of the advanced features of syslog-ng
7 Premium from (based on and extending their open source version):
9 SSL-encrypted traffic over the network
10 Disk-based buffering on the client
11 Windows agents
12 Timezone aware (which syslog doesn't do and syslog-ng only partially)
13 Encrypted disk files
14 Filter, parse and rewrite incoming logs (vital if you need the auth log over
15 here and the password field stored over there, without jumping through hoops
16 first)
17 High scalability - 2000 Cisco devices and 200+ servers to start, distributed
18 country wide
