    It depends on what are you trying to accomplish.
    I can see the truth in your rebuttal, but there is a fair amount of
    truth in the original message too.
    Centralising syslog is good if you must analyse the information that
    syslog provides in a centralised fashion. Sure, there are lots of things
    you could do with SNMP, but i don't think the areas covered by syslog
    and SNMP are mutually inclusive (i.e. the same).
