    Using SNMP to overcome problems with syslog is kind of like
    using bubonic plague to distract yourself from an irritating cold,
    isn't it?
    There is a need to know if packets are not getting to the syslog
    host.  This is a network management problem.  A mid-sized shop such
    as the one the author mentioned should already have a management
    console (commercial or Open Source) and alerts working. 
    That said, I hate it when I get bubonic plague.  Ruins my whole day.
