central syslog


under the /etc/syslog.conf , i defined :

*.info;mail.none;authpriv.none;cron.none @192.168.1.104


This will dump the log to 192.168.1.104 /var/log/messages by default.

If I got 10 servers, can i dump the log to 192.168.1.104 in different directory/files? If all the logs from all the servers are dump into the same file, it will be very messy.

Thanks.

id' really strongly suggest you have a look at syslog-ng, it's so so much more advanced that the standard syslogd and is great for networked syslog services.
