What is a Syslog?

A Syslog is a standard for logging program messages, Syslog allows separation of the software that generates messages from the system that stores them and the software that reports and analyzes them. For devices that would otherwise be unable to communicate, Syslog provides a means to notify administrators of problems or performance. Syslog can be used for computer system management and security auditing as well as generalized informational, analysis, and debugging messages. Supported by a wide variety of devices (like printers and routers) and receivers across multiple platforms, Syslog can be used to integrate log data from many different types of systems into a central repository.
