    Hello All:

    I am trying to use one of my linux boxes to get information from my
    foundry switches (and eventually a lot of other gear) using the syslog
    facility. This will be in addition to SNMP which I am already using via

    I have managed to configure things so that the messages are heading to
    /var/logs/messages, but I cannot seem to get them to go to the device
    specific files that I have designated.

    Here is a copy of my /etc/syslog.conf file

    # Log all kernel messages to the console.
    # Logging much else clutters up the screen.
    #kern.* /dev/console

    # Log anything (except mail) of level info or higher.
    # Don't log private authentication messages!

    # The authpriv file has restricted access.
    authpriv.* /var/log/secure

    # Log all the mail messages in one place.
    mail.* /var/log/maillog

    # Log cron stuff
    cron.* /var/log/cron

    # Everybody gets emergency messages
    *.emerg *

    # Save news errors of level crit and higher in a special file.
    uucp,news.crit /var/log/spooler

    # Save boot messages also to boot.log

    #send messages from Lancelot to Lancelot.log*

    #send messages from tristan. tristan.log*

    If anyone can help me out, what I would like is for each device to have
    its own separate log file, and then I need suggestions on how to
    properly view them etc
