Ralph Goers commented on LBCLASSIC-116:

Rats! I just discovered I left the version out. I'll have to fix that. 

The biggest issue with compatibility is that the timestamp changed (and there is a version between the <PRI> and timestamp.

rsyslog has added support, although it might still have some bugs. See http://www.rsyslog.com/module-Static_Docs-view-f-features.html.phtml
syslog-ng supposedly supports it. See http://corporate.blogs.balabit.com/2009/01/reliability-and-compliance-syslog-ng-pe.html. I believe RedHat distributes the free version of syslog-ng.

I'm going to be working with RSA's enVision appliance which supposedly will handle these messages.

> The SyslogAppender supports RFC 3164. RFC 5424 has been released with obsoletes RFC 3164. See http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc5424.txt. At the very least the format of the timestamp has been changed. Either the SyslogAppender should be enhanced to comply with RFC 5424 or a new SyslogAppender should be created which does.
