rsyslog: reliable system and kernel logging daemon

 Rsyslog is a multi-threaded implementation of syslogd (a system utility
 providing support for message logging), with features that include:
  * reliable syslog over TCP, SSL/TLS and RELP
  * on-demand disk buffering
  * email alerting
  * writing to MySQL or PostgreSQL databases (via separate output plugins)
  * permitted sender lists
  * filtering on any part of the syslog message
  * on-the-wire message compression
  * fine-grained output format control
  * failover to backup destinations
  * enterprise-class encrypted syslog relaying
 It is the default syslogd on Debian systems.

 It describes the general configuration file syntax for filters, actions,
 templates, etc, and has detailed information for all available configuration

 messages via the upcoming syslog-transport-tls IETF standard protocol.

rsyslog-gssapi: GSSAPI authentication and encryption support for rsyslog

 These plugins allow rsyslog to write and/or receive GSSAPI authenticated and
 encrypted syslog messages. GSSAPI is commonly used for Kerberos

rsyslog-mysql: MySQL output plugin for rsyslog
