rsyslog is actually installed by default in 10.04, so you should have
it on all of your Ubuntu server 10.04 installs.
It will, by default, not listen for incoming traffic, so you will need
to edit /etc/rsyslog.conf and uncomment these lines:
# provides UDP syslog reception
# provides TCP syslog reception
Also for your clients, you need to tell them to send their logs to the
main server. Simplest way to do this is to add a file to /etc/rsyslog.d
that has this in it:
I'd suggest reading 'man rsyslog.conf', under the section "Remote machine"
for some tips on how to tune the reliability of these messages.
As far as log viewing, I'm a fan of using ssh windows for it.. and 'ccze'
for colorizing the messages... this works:
tail -F /var/log/syslog | ccze
