I am the author of rsyslog, the now-default logging daemon on Fedora. I have thought a bit on how many systems rsyslog is installed, and came to the conclusion that Fedora currently is the major source of installations. Then, I looked at the Fedora metrics and interpreted them according to what I read and my understanding. I came to the conclusion that around 5 million systems run F8 or above (this is where rsyslog is default).
I have blogged about all that and would appreciate if someone with more insight could comment on my thoughs (the basic question is: are my assumptions right?).
The blog post is available here:
I appreciate all feedback!
