Certainly for Solaris, loghost is the standard name for the central 
logging server.  The syslog.conf file is configured such that if you 
define a host "loghost" then it's used to log to.

     What are they?            Zombies.
     Are they dead?            No, they're undead.
     So they're like you?      No, zombies are slow, dim-witted,
                               evil undead beings.
     So, they're like you?
