Name        : rsyslog
Product     : Fedora 10
Version     : 3.21.9
Release     : 1.fc10
URL         : http://www.rsyslog.com/
Summary     : Enhanced system logging and kernel message trapping daemons
Description :
Rsyslog is an enhanced multi-threaded syslogd supporting, among others, MySQL,
syslog/tcp, RFC 3195, permitted sender lists, filtering on any message part,
and fine grain output format control. 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.
