System logger that sorts based on message contents
'syslog-ng' is a syslogd replacement with new functionality. The original syslogd sorts messages based only on priority/facility pairs; syslog-ng can filter based on message contents using regular expressions. Forwarding logs over TCP and remembering all forwarding hops makes it ideal for firewalled environments.
