If I take a look at https://gist.github.com/marcelom/4218010, it seems
easy to receive syslog messages in python. It does not have to go
through files. If you configure full_audit and your syslog daemon such
that the specific messages go to a "remote" syslog on your local box,
it does not have to flood files. I think that at least rsyslog should
also have the ability to send out messages via TCP, so it should be no
less reliable than your proposed method.
