Enhanced system logging daemon (metapackage)

syslog-ng is an enhanced log daemon, supporting a wide range of input and output methods: syslog, unstructured text, message queues, databases (SQL and NoSQL alike) and more.

Key features:

 * receive and send RFC3164 and RFC5424 style syslog messages
 * work with any kind of unstructured data
 * receive and send JSON formatted messages
 * classify and structure logs with builtin parsers (csv-parser(),
   db-parser(), etc.)
 * normalize, crunch and process logs as they flow through the system
 * hand on messages for further processing using message queues (like
   AMQP), files or databases (like PostgreSQL or MongoDB).

This package is a metapackage, depending on the rest of syslog-ng, including all available plugins. It can be safely removed, if only parts of syslog-ng need to be installed.
