Logging question

Hi Lars,

If you haven't already, take a look at syslog-ng.  It allows you to define
regular expression filters and can be configured to parse logs into
different target log files.


Not sure if this will do everything you want, but it might be a good
starting point.

Damm, nothing in life is perfect. 
My previus DHCP server had a log facillity with configurable eval. parameter
like time/date/mac etc. that could be set individually for each scope or
even pr. Client, but it can not handle IP limitation based on opt. 82 info
like ISC DHCPd.

So it seems like I have to dig into the possibility of parsing syslog :-/
