yes, that is not problem, but I want to control logging in one place
not in each config file of service I have ran on machine.

I have thought that this
*.*                                             /var/log/sudo.log
will take off logging in /var/log/messages but this work as
log to /var/log/messages and to /var/log/sudo.log =((
