socklog, in cooperation with the runit package, is a small and secure
replacement for syslogd.

It can receive syslog messages from a unix domain socket ("/dev/log")
and write them to various files on disk depending on facility and

It can receive messages from a udp socket ("") and
write them to disk, or forward the messages to another udp socket

svlogd has a built in log file rotation based on file size,
so there is no need for any cron jobs or similar to rotate the logs.

Check README.Slackware on how to use it after installation.

This requires: runit
