Thanks for your quick reply.
Yes, I have seen that file in etc/syslog.conf.
I want to monitor some of my devices, to know exactly who has log in, who is

Can you advise me a script or any tool to examine the log files as I want to
consider this machine as a server?

/etc/syslog.conf is the file syslog will read.

syslog is installed and runs by default, using /etc/syslog.conf as its
configuration file. Is there anything in particular you want to do with
