info on syslog configuration


As a side note: this is just a thread part of my main thread which is destinated at securing debian!
Code:
----------------------------------------------------------------------
configured syslog				  [ /etc/syslog.conf ]
----------------------------------------------------------------------

#  /etc/syslog.conf	Configuration file for syslogd.
#
#			For more information see syslog.conf(5)
#			manpage.


# --------------------------------------------------------------------
# logging by priority
# --------------------------------------------------------------------
*.=crit				/var/log/critical.log
*.=emerg			/var/log/emergency.log
*.=err				/var/log/error.log
*.=info;\
	cron.none;\
	mail.none;		/var/log/info.log
# --------------------------------------------------------------------



# --------------------------------------------------------------------
# logging by facility
# --------------------------------------------------------------------
auth,authpriv.*			/var/log/auth.log
cron.*				-/var/log/cron.log
daemon.*			-/var/log/daemon.log
kern.*				-/var/log/kern.log
lpr.*				-/var/log/lpr.log
mail.*				-/var/log/mail.log
news.crit			/var/log/news/news.crit
news.err			/var/log/news/news.err
news.notice			-/var/log/news/news.notice
user.*				-/var/log/user.log
uucp.*				-/var/log/uucp.log
# --------------------------------------------------------------------



# --------------------------------------------------------------------
# logging to the virtual consoles (= display)
# --------------------------------------------------------------------
daemon,mail.*;\
	news.=crit;news.=err;news.=notice;\
	*.=debug;*.=info;\
	*.=notice;*.=warn	/dev/tty8
# --------------------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Logging to different files makes it easier for parsing through log files, etc. It just eases the administration IMHO. If you have any questions regarding this configuration just post!
