System logger new generation -- http://www.balabit.hu/products/syslog-ng/
syslog-ng 1.1.33 -- 20 octobre 1999,158ko (.tar.gz)
libol 0.2.5 -- 20 octobre 1999,148ko (.tar.gz)
syslog-ng is a syslogd replacement for unix and unix-like systems. It has been tested on Solaris, BSDi and Linux, and were found to run reliably.
syslog-ng gives you a much enhanced configuration scheme, which lets you filter messages based on not only priority/facility pairs, but also on message content. You can use regexps to direct log stream to different destinations. A destination can be anything from a simple file to a network connection. syslog-ng supports TCP logforwarding, together with hashing to prevent unauthorized modification on the line. Here is a sample config file.
