Remotely monitoring server activity

"syslog-ng" has everything you need. By writing some script code, you 
can do almost anything with logging data. You can write both to flat 
files and SQL servers.

If you're running it on FreeBSD, note that the capability of writing to 
SQL does not come out of the box if you install it using "pkg." To make 
a custom install, you must install it from ports.

FreeRADIUS is not logging software. You must configure your system to 
send all the logging data to your logging server.
