Maybe I’m doing something wrong.
I see some of the headers but not all.
2016-09-08T17:31:17-04:00 <IPADDR> <HOST> %ASA-3-305006: regular translation creation failed for imp src ….
I guess what I was looking for is something that I could write blocks of data to and read from irregardless of the type of data.
Something almost like tcpdump or buffer that could rotate every hour or so and then be used to re-play directly back into syslog-ng.

> Alternatively, you could save it in the file as the original format, and then it can just be sent back to syslog when you need to. Human readablility is not quite as good, but if you have the data in splunk or whatever, then humans don't need to read the raw files.
