Name        : syslog-ng
Product     : Fedora 8
Version     : 2.0.8
Release     : 1.fc8
URL         : http://www.balabit.com/products/syslog-ng/
Summary     : Syslog replacement daemon
Description :
syslog-ng, as the name shows, is a syslogd replacement, but with new
functionality for the new generation. The original syslogd allows
messages only to be sorted based on priority/facility pairs; syslog-ng
adds the possibility to filter based on message contents using regular
expressions. The new configuration scheme is intuitive and powerful.
Forwarding logs over TCP and remembering all forwarding hops makes it
ideal for firewalled environments.

Update Information:

Bugfixes:  * Fixed a regression in 2.0.7 that caused destination files not tobe
reopened when syslog-ng was reloaded. This causes potential problems with log
rotation.  * Fixed DNS cache size checking, persistent DNS cache entries were
also counted against dns_cache_size() which might decrease cache space
significantly when a large /etc/hosts file is in use.  * Fixed a bug that caused
the persistent DNS cache (e.g. /etc/hosts) to be reloaded for all name
resolution requests.
