comment Is it possible to use RPM as a poor man's tripwire?
Because all of my experiences with tripwire have been bad and this isn't for intrusion detection, it is for detecting changes made in a production environment.

comment How can I keep SSH's know_hosts up to date (semi-securely)?
This is why I asked, I knew there had to be a better way. I already have a pattern setup in ~/.ssh/config for those hosts (to force root as the user), so adding a StrictHostKeyChecking no to that section solves the problem nicely.

comment Where is dhcpd's syslog message formats documented?
Yeah, when I didn't get pointed in the right direction in a few hours I went ahead and started reading the code. I have a better, if fuzzy, understanding of the specific message types I want. I am going to answer my own question with detailed info later when I am certain I know what the values are.

comment Where is dhcpd's syslog message formats documented?
@pulegium Not necessarily. The messages might have a fixed format. That is why I want to see docs rather than just examine the code. The docs will state whether or not the format will change. If the format is not documented, then yes, I can't trust the source to be accurate for anything but that release.

comment Is there some way (in Linux) to set how syslog writes its timestamp
Hmm, it looks like this is the path I will have to go down. We don't have enough time to drop in rsyslog now, but I think it will work well for version 2.0.

comment How do I increase the buffer size for domain sockets in OS X 10.6
Without knowing what the buffer size is, how can I know when to back off? If I use INET sockets it works just fine in OS X.

An ISO date is pretty much what I am looking for. The version reported by syslogd -v is syslogd 1.4.1.
