kiwi syslog and pix 525 logs getting spuratic events

I've been looking through my syslogs and noticed that huge chucks of log times are missing. It starts at 2am ends at 2:32:27 then picks up at 8:46:11 ends at 8:47:36 then picks back up at 15:01:23 and ends a minute later.  This happens off and on.  Why is it doing this? All these times are in the same log file and I have it regenerate a new file every day. My files are between 800k and 4MB varying.

Have you tried using a Linux machine instead or possibly another syslog daemon product? http://www.winsyslog.com/en/ The trial version should be enough to test with to see if its the server (syslog) itself or if it's the kiwi tools. http://www.sysrose.com/ 
Is this server set to get automatic updates, it might have something to do with this, a network driver update might knock the computer off the network for a minute or two, and a slow shutdown/reboot might last for a few minutes depending on how long the bios/scsi boot takes... Just guessing...

The machine is on a network that doesn't have internet. I didn't want to use linux because getting the logs off is yet another learning curve. But ill try another deamon. Do these syslog deamons have unlimited space for logs or at least can filter out junk from good data. I dont care about analyzing because analyzing costs money and I just want to use log parser for that.

They can write log's of any size, as much room as you give them is what they can take up. I've not used other deamons, but from the reviews they sound comparable to others like Kiwi.

I figured it out. The machine was shutting off the hard disk with some power saving feature. Sorry for the late answer.
