    Since you're already working for free, maybe you could also do these
    across a network? I don't mean a single switch but maybe more like a
    across several switches/routers (similar to internal to a datacenter)
    and across a WAN link (maybe similar to between corporate offices).
    This might give us more of a "real world" result set, since we're
    talking about logging across networks.
    Of course I understand if you just blow this off, your time is valuable.
