Unhappy howto network syslog with multiple log files

Hi All,

I configure one of my production server to act as a network syslog server. It is now running fine. Now the problem is all the logs are writen on /var/log/messages. This is not causing me headache to monitor this logs.

My question now is this. Is there a way to configure my syslog server in such a way that an individual host will log to a specific log file? example:

server will log to on /var/log/
server will log to on /var/log/
and so on.

Is this posible?

I would check out syslog-ng. Really easy to do with that program.
