PS: rsyslog can use standard syslog.conf entries, or it has extensions that enable more cool stuff.

Subject: which syslog??? (rsyslog? syslog-ng? or default?)

I have some boxes (about 40) that I was tasked with creating a
centralized logging infrastructure for. I see in ports that we have
several different versions of rsyslog, and syslog-ng.

Is there any reason to use one or the other? Or should I just use the
syslog that come with the base OS?
