[syslog-ng] Failover/Hi Availability

Hi Mark,

Please elaborate a bit more about your architecture. Relevant config parts are also appreciated.

Are there two syslog-ng servers running on the same machine?
Or is it just one syslog-ng instance with two different log sources (on different ports for example), and there is a host which sends to both log sources?
Maybe there are 2 different machines running their own syslog-ng, but using a network shared file system?

If I have two Syslog-ng servers receiving logs from the same source and writing to the exact same file system destination,  is there a way to do this without running into issues with the two instances clobbering the files or file locking issues?
