Can you send syslog messages to different file


Below is a copy of the /etc/syslog.conf file. I am logging syslog messages from remote routers to this machine. My problem is the second to the last instruction "local7.* > /var/log/boot.log.

This sends the router infromation to the boot.log file along with the boot information. I want to be able to send the router information to the routers.log file and all the other local7.* info to the bool.log file. Does anyone know if a way to redirect info from specific hosts to specific files?



# Log all kernel messages to the console.
# Logging much else clutters up the screen.
#kern.* /dev/console


# Log anything (except mail) of level info or higher.
# Don't log private authentication messages!
*.info;mail.none;authpriv.none;cron.none /var/log/messages

# The authpriv file has restricted access.
authpriv.* /var/log/secure

# Log all the mail messages in one place.
mail.* /var/log/maillog


# Log cron stuff
cron.* /var/log/cron

# Everybody gets emergency messages
*.emerg *

# Save news errors of level crit and higher in a special file.
uucp,news.crit /var/log/spooler

# Save boot messages also to boot.log
local7.* /var/log/boot.log

#save logs from routers
local7.info /var/log/routers.log

You might want to take a look at a more advanced syslog program - I believe syslog-ng can do this.
