Binary package “rsyslog” in ubuntu lucid

enhanced multi-threaded syslogd

 Rsyslog is an enhanced syslogd supporting, amongst others:
  * reliable syslog over TCP and SSL/TLS
  * 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
  * backup log destinations
 .
 It is quite compatible to stock sysklogd and can be used as a drop-in
 replacement. Its advanced features make it suitable for enterprise-class,
 encryption protected syslog relay chains while at the same time being very
 easy to setup for the novice user.
