A couple of links I found in a quick google:

A scripting workaround:

You could do the second thing with the kiwi logger, too, just pipe to the
kiwi logger utility and do the same. If you have rapid-fire webserver logs,

windows does not qualify for :o) If it did, you could syslog locally, then
forward them on.
