Separating McAfee scan results in SYSLOG

You said, "You never know what you'll want from your logfiles until you do, so I wouldn't try being too incredibly specific except for separating mcaffee results from everything else interesting.".

How do you separate McAfee results from everything else?

Thanks,

First I would check the suggestion cjcox made last week:

Quote:
You need to consult your McAfee manual and see if the "facility" is configurable. Usually, you'd choose one of the "user" facility types (local0 - local7) and configure it to use that facility... then you can adjust your syslog conf to take messages for that facility and output to a separate log area.

syslog file filling up

In Suse Linux servers, there is a syslog file /var/log/messages The file size is 5G and it's getting filled up with logs.

What happens when it reaches to full? Is the system going to stop? Is there a mechanism to clean up or rotate automatically so that the file never reaches full?

Thanks,
