sysklogd, rsyslog or syslog-ng
As you all know, sysklogd is used standard by slackware.
however I think slackware needs to change to rsyslog
main reason is multi-threading.
with all newer CPU's sysklogd has problems in keeping up.
rsyslog is basically an extension upon sysklogd.
it also follows the RFC 3195 (syslog-reliable) standard.
it also supports ipv6 which sysklogd does not.
basically all above features are also in syslog-ng if not mistaken.
However, syslog-ng has 2 licences. (1 of them an enterprise licence)
so imo syslog-ng would be a no go.
What are peoples opinion about this ?
and why does slackware need to stay with sysklogd instead of rsyslog (or syslog-ng) if you think that would be best.
