Hi !

Much thanks !
In preparation to a system update, I looked forward and
finally recognized, that syslog-ng was best bet - due to
a lot of neccessary features. Then I was faced with systemd,
just to see, that it handles all that in a much better way.
systemd gives a linux system what can be probably called
logging .... there are many enhancements over the old
sys/r/syslog/ng ..

So far I can see, it gives you an event system for this,
which is the best [I wrote my EventlogCollectorSystem
about 10 years ago, for windows, monitoring hundres
of servers]. Coming to linux, I felt all logging here
as always stonehenge and bad ...

So I'll keep searching ...
Probably I will look to other languages bindings :-(
Or fallback with no code-changes to syslog-ng :-(

Thanks anyway,
