4.27. rsyslog

rsyslog is an enhanced multi-threaded system logging utility (syslogd) which supports MySQL, syslog/tcp, RFC 3195, permitted sender lists, filtering on any message part, and fine-grain output format control. It is quite compatible to stock sysklogd, and can be used as a drop-in replacement. Its advanced features make it suitable for enterprise-class, encryption-protected syslog relay chains while at the same time being very easy for the novice user to set up.
