Syslog


I was reading around the web and saw that someone mentioned that the default syslog configuration should be adjusted. Is that true?

It depends on what you want. You can adjust the system log settings to keep track of things that interest you which may not be logged by default.

If this idea is being proposed then the person proposing that idea should have explained the reasons for that proposal. Your question should have included some of these justifications or links to web pages making these statements.

The simple answer is no.
