syslog-ng is an enhanced log daemon, supporting a wide range of input and
output methods: syslog, unstructured text, message queues, databases (SQL
and NoSQL alike) and more.
Key features:
* receive and send RFC3164 and RFC5424 style syslog messages
* work with any kind of unstructured data
* receive and send JSON formatted messages
* classify and structure logs with builtin parsers (csv-parser(),
db-parser(), ...)
* normalize, crunch and process logs as they flow through the system
* hand on messages for further processing using message queues (like
AMQP), files or databases (like PostgreSQL or MongoDB).

syslog-ng is now installed!  To replace FreeBSD's standard syslogd
(/usr/sbin/syslogd), complete these steps:
1. Create a configuration file named /usr/local/etc/syslog-ng.conf
(a sample named syslog-ng.conf.sample has been included in
/usr/local/etc). Note that this is a change in 2.0.2
version, previous ones put the config file in
/usr/local/etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf, so if this is an update
move that file in the right place
2. Configure syslog-ng to start automatically by adding the following
to /etc/rc.conf:
3. Prevent the standard FreeBSD syslogd from starting automatically by
adding a line to the end of your /etc/rc.conf file that reads:
4. Shut down the standard FreeBSD syslogd:
kill `cat /var/run/`
5. Start syslog-ng:
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/syslog-ng start
