Description

Both man syslog and http://www.postfix.org/BASIC_CONFIGURATION_README.html
mention syslog.conf

man syslog says: check syslog.conf(5)

However, I do not have /etc/syslog.conf
I could create it myself, however I wouldn't know what to write:
# man syslog.conf
No manual entry for syslog.conf
# man 5 syslog.conf
No manual entry for syslog.conf in section 5

It's because my server installed rsyslogd, which has its own configuration file,
rsyslog.conf, which has its own man page.

Apparently there are different system loggers. Which system loggers are available? Where to get more information about each?

The postfix documentation above wrongly assumes that we use syslog.
