I didn't like the name. Let's call it syslogger_file_name. It describes
what the variable is (actual file name that syslogger is writing on).

I prefer (1) because (i) logfile name is not statistics and (ii) stats
collector could not respond in certain circumstances (and even discard
some messages).
