Im looking for a way to debug a syslog server. What is happening is that the syslog buffer is filling up too quickly so is loosing logs before it is writing it to the file.

I have set the syslog server to asynchronous which has now resolved the issue. And all the logs are being written to the file.

Is there anyway to find if syslogs is encountering errors, Id rather only enable this if it is having issues rather then enabling it by default.

Ive had a google about for some more indepth information about syslog but so far have found nothing.

Thanks in advance.
