It suffers from other problems however. It's busy with logging other daemons' activity, it usually doesn't have automatic rotation feature, and it usually could care less about filling up your disc completely. Chews up lots of CPU time. Some implementations lose data when load average is high, etc. Bottom line: syslog is great at causing system administration headaches. Don't use it for busy servers.
