It seems that by default, osquery logs JSON messages into a file.  (
https://osquery.readthedocs.io/en/latest/deployment/logging/ )
You can use this file in a syslog-ng source, and parse the JSON messages
with the json parser (note that you need a recent syslog-ng OSE for this),

The above Osquery page mentions that it can send log messages directly to
syslog (instead of a file), but I  haven't found how you can actually
configure it.
