[Gluster-users] Logging to syslog

Hi Anand,

a log translator would help a lot, but modifying the source will do for now, thanks. I just wanted to make sure I didn't miss anything that's already in place.

I can't tell if logging to syslog is desirable in general, however it certainly is for us. We're using a central syslog-Server to monitor our servers and their services - having our storagecluster-to-be based on glusterfs included in this central monitoring obviously is desirable.

Best Regards,
Markus Gerstner
