Firewall Syslogs Needed!

I'm comparing syslog structure among popular firewall appliances for a high school project.

I would like samples of syslog logs (please change the IP's for security sake) and I only need a few lines.

I'm trying to prove or disprove if there is indeed an industry standard syslog format or if different mfg's customize thier own.

Also wondering if a Mfg will have different syslog structures among it's different models.

I've already proved that Netgear firewall appliances have varying syslog same structures.

Help a student please...

Go to www.cisco.com and search for 'syslog', you'll get a lot of entries for both routers and firewalls

Go to www.juniper.net and search for 'syslog' again.

I have a Cisco PIX myself.

I would like something from other mfg's if possible, like SonicWall, etc...

Thanks for the help so far.
