Working in an almost Windows only company - and need to set up a syslog server recieving messages from our proxy, firewall and VPN-applicances. For now we have decided to use Kiwi Syslog server, but quickly realized that with the default setting of the proxy and the firewall we are way above the max number of messages for Kiwi pr. hour - which is 2 million messages. So instead of only one server, we need to configure at least one server pr. appliance.
Trying to figure out what throughput we could expect if we where running Linux. If I'm not totally mistaken the Syslog-ng premium delivers way over that - it measures messages pr. second not pr. hour,- but that is anyhow a licensed version. I have not been able to find any numbers for any open source versions.
