Receving emails syslogd failed every 5 minutes

syslogd failed @ Fri Dec 25 09:12:32 2009. A restart was attempted automagically.

Check logs

-bash-3.2# tail -f /usr/local/cpanel/logs/tailwatchd_log
Notification => test@gmail.com via EMAIL [level => 1]
Notification => test@gmail.com via EMAIL [level => 1]
Notification => test@gmail.com via EMAIL [level => 1]

Check if syslogd is installed or not
-bash-3.2# /etc/init.d/syslog restart
-bash: /etc/init.d/syslog: No such file or directory

Install sysklogd

-bash-3.2# yum install sysklogd

Once done check by restarting the service.

-bash-3.2# /etc/init.d/syslog restart
Shutting down kernel logger: [FAILED]
Shutting down system logger: [FAILED]
Starting system logger: [ OK ]
Starting kernel logger: [ OK ]

Check the logs again

-bash-3.2# tail -f /usr/local/cpanel/logs/tailwatchd_log

This should resolve the issue.
