rsyslog will create a file /var/log/system-<hostname>.log as soon as messages are received from <hostname>..
I have spend a couple of hours on rsyslog yesterday.. The version in RHEL/CentOS doesn't appear to be very complete (no tls for example?).. since only the mysql-module is included
syslog-ng is very good as well, a little easier to config.

I added this to /etc/rsyslog.conf:
The log that gets created for my router is called:
So I've been trying to modify it using a different propnames instead of
%HOSTNAME%. So far all I get for a result is:
system-**INVALID PROPERTY NAME**.log
In upper and lower case I've tried:
Any suggestions? It's so close now!
