    I'm using them together.  They work beautifully.  IIRC, syslog-ng puts
the files into the same format as syslog, and you just point logwatch at the
log files.

    If you're doing multiple hosts, you may also want to look at logconf.

    http://www.sourceforge.net/projects/logconf/

    It's designed for configuring multiple hosts using syslog-ng, logwatch,
logrotate, and the like.

    Thanks,
