Oracle log to syslog?

Is it possible to redirect Oracle's logs to a remote syslog server?

I can't seem to find any information on this...  I'm looking for links and information on how to do this..

You can create one cron job (UNIX process) to copy the file to some remote directory at a specific timing.

Is the log a file?  I was under the impression that it existed as an oracle database?

Unfortunately, copying it over would not work.. the nearest thing that I have thought of was a program, daemonized or cron'd, that examines the log very frequently and will send any logs it finds to the remote syslog server.

Either way, the timestamps will be skewed by atleast a little.
Yes, the log is a file. It's an alert log.

The name is : ALERT{sidname}.log   located in the dbump sub directory. Just do a search to find it.

It's a good idea to scan this file for error and send it  to the remote syslog server.
