Description Helmut Schneider 2009-12-02 13:00:07 UTC
Sixxs-Aiccu logs to LOCAL7 which is used for many other things like apache httpd error log. I can't see why it does not simply log e.g. to DAEMON which sounds resonable for me. I tried to create a patch but without success (probably because I don't know C(++) very well), aiccu still logs to LOCAL7.

Apache logs by default in its one file. 

By activating it you define the scope, normally local1 
ErrorLog syslog:local1 

you can easy setup syslog to put stuff from apache.local7 
and sixxs-aiccu.local7 into different logfiles. 

Chnanging default ifor sixxs-aiccu makes not much sense here. 
Maybe you can explain why this as an option would make sense.

$ man syslog.conf 
A program specification is a line beginning with `#!prog' or `!prog' (the 
former is for compatibility with the previous syslogd, if one is sharing 
syslog.conf files, for example) and the following blocks will be associ- 
ated with calls to syslog(3) from that specific program.  A program spec- 
ification for `foo' will also match any message logged by the kernel with 
the prefix `foo: '.  The `#!+prog' or `!+prog' specification works just 
like the previous one, and the `#!-prog' or `!-prog' specification will 
match any message but the ones from that program.  Multiple programs may 
be listed, separated by commas: `!prog1,prog2' matches messages from 
either program, while `!-prog1,prog2' matches all messages but those from 
`prog1' or `prog2'. 

So putting this at the end of your syslogd.conf: 

*.*	/var/log/sixxs-tunnel.log 

Will keep the apache logs clean.
