I've started loading my Sparc server with logs. No crashes so far.

do you have remote sources? (e.g. udp or tcp?)

if yes, which one is loaded?

this is my config now:

source src { udp(port(2000)); sun-streams("/dev/log" door("/etc/.syslog_door")); internal(); };
destination dst { file("/var/log/messages"); };

log { source(src); destination(dst); };

I'm sending messages through udp and from locally as well.
