[scarolan at client ~]$ rpm -q sysklogd

Sample from /var/log/mylogfile.log. email addresses, ip address and
session id changed to protect the innocent.  The
"localhost.localdomain" entry is actually in the log entry though.  I
did not change this part.  These get written to the local file but not
the remote host.
