I have just setup syslog-ng to log about 15 machines to a central log
host, and i absolutely love it, but i have a question. right now i'm
splitting the logs like this on the loghost
destination hosts {
   owner(root) group(root) perm(0600) dir_perm(0700) create_dirs(yes));

but that only splits the logs via facility. there are more logs being
written on the client log machines, which are configured like this

destination messages { file("/var/log/messages"); };
destination ssh { file("/var/log/ssh.log"); };
destination cron { file("/var/log/cron.log"); };
destination auth { file("/var/log/auth.log"); };
destination syslog { file("/var/log/syslog.log"); };
destination xinetd { file("/var/log/xinetd.log"); };
destination rsync { file("/var/log/rsync.log"); };
destination cfengine { file("/var/log/cfengine.log"); };

filter f_ssh { program("sshd"); };
filter f_cron { program("cron"); };
filter f_auth { program("su") or program("sudo"); };
filter f_syslog { program("syslog-ng"); };
filter f_xinetd { program("xinetd"); };
filter f_rsync { program("rsyncd"); };
filter f_cfengine { program("cfengine"); };
filter f_messages { ...}; // with messages getting everything else

log { source(src); filter(f_ssh); destination(ssh); };
log { source(src); filter(f_cron); destination(cron); };
log { source(src); filter(f_auth); destination(auth); };
log { source(src); filter(f_syslog); destination(syslog); };
log { source(src); filter(f_xinetd); destination(xinetd); };
log { source(src); filter(f_rsync); destination(rsync); };
log { source(src); filter(f_cfengine); destination(cfengine); };
log { source(src); filter(f_messages); destination(messages); };

what i would like to do is log the files as they are being logged
locally on the client machines, the same way on the loghost. do i have
to change the destination? how do i get the same file names, etc, that
are being logged, but on the loghost? any help is greatly appreciated.
