For some reason I have a hard time wrapping my head around how OS X handles things like init, cron, and "normal" daemon maint. Too many years spent doing *nix work.

How do I configure syslogd on a 10.6 OS X box to send logs to a syslog server?


was a simple matter of adding:

*.*       @remote_ip

to /etc/syslog.conf

Then issuing

launchctl stop com.apple.syslogd
launchctl start com.apple.syslogd

sigh whatever happened to /etc/rc.d/init.d/syslogd restart. . .
