I don't use "Weblogic" so I won't be much help.

... this sounds like an Oracle question (since I'm guessing you're using
the Oracle Weblogic application server).

Based on a quick Google Search I found [0] [1].  They indicate you'll need
to configure log4j to syslog its messages.  You can choose to store them on
the local machine with its syslog daemon (rsyslog if CentOS 6.x) _OR_
syslog to another 'central' syslog server (or both).

The biggest hurdle is what can/should be configured with log4j ... and
unless we have a Oracle Weblogic admin on this list we won't have an answer
here. :-(
