That looks quite slick.

Two questions:

(1) Have you looked at SyslogScan::SyslogEntry.pm?  Does some of the
work for you.  Most useful if you scan different kinds of logs and would
like to use the same interface.

(2) How do you get the connections logged by syslog?  I've tried various
combinations of 'syslog level' and 'syslog only' and can't seem to pull
it off.
