socklog: System and kernel logging services1

Package available in: [trunk] [8.0] [7.0] [6.0] [2.1]

socklog, in cooperation with the runit package, is a small and secure replacement for syslogd. There are three main features syslogd provides: - receiving syslog messages from an unix domain socket ("/dev/log") and writing them to various files on disk depending on facility and priority. - receiving syslog messages from an udp socket ("0.0.0.0:514") and writing them to various files on disk depending on facility and priority. - writing received syslog messages to an udp socket ("a.b.c.d:514")

socklog provides the first two features with the help of runit's runsvdir, runsv, and svlogd, provides a different network logging concept, and additionally does log event notification.

svlogd has a built in log file rotation based on file size, so there is no need for any cron jobs or similar to rotate the logs. Log partitions can be calculated properly.
