Re: Managing logs

You can have one machine with syslog accepting remote loging -- edit /etc/sysconfg/syslog
with SYSLOGD_OPTIONS="-r -m 0"

restart syslog

on other machines add

*.*		@loghost

and restart syslog

these boxes will now send there logs to loghost. you can also then install swatch on loghost

General Question:

I have a combination of RHEL 4 and Centos servers. Currently I'm getting e-mail from logwatch each morning on each machine. I'm sure there is a better way of managing and viewing system logs. Can anyone suggest a centralized method of gathering/formating system log information? I have looked at systems like nagios but they seem like a lot of work to get up and running.
