Description

I know this will require upstream work in a lot of other projects, but the redirecting of all logs to syslog/journald will simplify life for Sys Admins.
Providing structured key:value pair fields to journald would elevate this functionality further.
Apache HTTP Server 2.5 recently added this kind of capability: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/trunk/mod/mod_journald.html
For complex estates with a central Katello server and multiple capsules/smart proxies dotted around the network, it is a huge benefit to be able to pull all log files back to a central point. This would be made very much easier by the relevant applications writing their log files directly to journald.

Hello, we already track this effort, but since we still fully support RHEL 6 systems, we don't rush with this.
