I am writing a auth log parser as a means to contribute to a tool and to learn linux logging better. I have been reading up on syslog and log facilities and was wondering if what is in auth.log will also be duplicated in syslog.log? Does it just make sense to only parse syslog and not other facility specific log files, assuming I want as much as I can get anyways?
