comment how to get a subset of NTP servers from *.pool.ntp.org?
I completely understand that the provider of an NTP host may not want to have it published (I probably would have had the same concerns). I do not want to overuse the NTP service and since the visibility of the hosts does not seem to be provided outside of DNS queries I will leave my quest there. The 13 hosts I gathered are enough for a test (which is a one shot one (or seldom-shot one so to speak)). Thank you for providing resources to the community, BTW :)

comment how to get a subset of NTP servers from *.pool.ntp.org?
@ott--: I could, yes, but even right now when querying the pool (fr.pool.ntp.org, not the servers 0.pool...) 100 times in a row I get 13 distinct servers. By seeding the DNS servers I could try to go around the cache -- but what I am looking for is a straight list of servers, not one which is built up indirectly.

comment how to get a subset of NTP servers from *.pool.ntp.org?
I understand why I am getting a limited number of servers (and this is fine and expected). My question was about the direct availability of a larger list (as opposed to one built-up from DNS queries). I will make that clear in the question.

comment syslog-ng error on CentOS, works fine on other distributions
Thank you, this is a life saver. I was suspecting a problem with the versions, now I know. As for the format: I saw this but need to have raw JSON logs (a JSON per line) which was not obvious to have with the built-in formatter

comment Reverse DNS Lookups
This would work if the hosts are always-on. If the machines are also laptops then some (or a lot, depends on the activity) may get lost.
