Default Best way to get dhcpd messages piped to a web service.

Starting off, it is important not to loose any dhcp messages, especially during
log rotation.

My first thought on this would be to add a fifo to syslog.conf and slup from it,

# perl -ne 'm/.../ && WWW::Curl ...' < /var/log/messages.fifo

Does anyone see a more proper way?

tail -F / -f could both miss messages during log rotation (please correct me if
I am wrong)

What are some of the problems that could be manifested in syslog if the fifo
consumer stops consuming or has other issues?
