SYSLOG(8) System Logging SYSLOG(8)
There are different syslog daemon implementations supported as the system's syslog service, currently syslogd, syslog-ng and rsyslogd
The first installed daemon activates itself for the syslog service. Starting with openSUSE-11.2, it is rsyslogd, before it was syslog-ng.
But this depends on the software selection during the installation.
The name of the daemon used as syslog service is specified in the
SYSLOG_DAEMON variable in /etc/sysconfig/syslog.
The yast2 sysconfig module provides a comfortable way to switch to another installed daemon and restart the service.
The /etc/init.d/syslog init script is able to handle all supported daemons.
