If a Cisco switch sends a message like this:
2005 Aug 23 03:04:05 UTC +00:00 %PAGP-5-PORTFROMSTP:Port 4/16 left bridge port 4/16
...it'll be written to disk like this:
Aug 23 03:04:05 switch.company.com 2005 Aug 23 03:04:05 UTC +00:00 %PAGP-5-PORTFROMSTP:Port 4/16 left bridge port 4/16
syslog servers put in a proper syslog formatted header.
The behavior is documented here:
It's not syslog-ng specific behavior.
