Description Jason Vas Dias 2005-09-12 12:55:08 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #167757 +++

Description of problem:
Currently system-config-netboot modifies the syslog config of the diskless image
to also remote log to the server serving out the image in addition to the loging
 to /var/log (which ironically is also by default space on the server serving
the image).  This is less then optimal/flexible.  Maybe a good suggestion is to
allow choices from the diskless config gui to select if the particular image
should log to /var/*, remote to a server or both.  If remote to a server allow
us to specify the server.

This is all important because it is important to control wasted trafic to the
diskless image server to keep the load under control as well as disk space usage
such that we can end up with the best performance on the diskless client as we can.
