Logging syslog to a database

Author: JT Smith

Daemon News reports: "When there's a problem on your system, or in your network, the first thing you check are system logs. You identify which system you should check, then locate the logfile. Sometimes you even have to check your syslog configuration, only to discover that what you are looking for is not even logged, due to a misconfiguration. You may also run 'less', 'more' and 'grep', to start digging into it. It's nice when you find the answer to your problem in the last few lines of log, but what can you do about it?"
