Default Centralized Log server

Dave,

Not exactly sure if syslogd handles this, but I know syslog-ng does.

I've set SYSLOGD_OPTIONS="-m 0 -r -x"
in /etc/sysconfig/syslog.

I've set my clients to point to the server in /etc/syslog.conf.

Is there a way to have log info from certain client platforms
go to separate log files on the log server?

For instance, I'd like my Mac OSX clients to send their log
information to a separate log file on my syslog server
than my Linux clients go to.

Both client types however have the same entry in their
/etc/syslog.conf files

*.* @syslogserver

So how can it be distinguished?

Is there an entry in the servers /etc/syslog.conf that could
determine if the logs are coming from OSX vs. Linux?

Thanks.

RedHat 5 should ship with rsyslog, which is a drop-in replacement for the syslogd package that is normally installed. The rsyslog can do pretty much everything the syslog-ng package will do. You can pattern match syslog entries and save them to different files.
