I'm not really surprised that syslog-ng is not the fastest syslogd out
there as it was not among the design goals.

In fact I _was_ surprised that it outperforms stock sysklogd. Sysklogd is so
much simpler.

The solution is syslog-ng 2 where improving performance was a goal. The
problem with syslog-ng 2 that it is not yet finished. :-(
