I am not sure that it is possible to throw audit messages direct to syslog and I don't know which version of syslog-ng comes with SLES. The last you can check with the command rpm -qa | grep syslog-ng.

The first is more difficult. You will need to define in your syslog-ng configuration one more source and destination for logs.

Source is something like:

source s_audit {
  file ("/var/log/audit/audit.log"

Destination is something like:

destination d_logrythm {

And then tell syslog-ng, that messages from audit.log should go to logrythm:

log { source(s_audit); destination(d_logrythm); };

Of course, it is just an example. You have to adapt this configuration to your environment.
