I have an issue with syslog messge logging.

My application sends some xml messages to a syslog server. The issue here is with the size limitation.When The xml message size exceeds approx 1000 bytes the message get truncated.

So I thought I will break the message into chunks of 900 bytes and log it..

The problem is the other guy whoz going to extract message from syslog has to assemble it and read..

So thought of introducing some new attributes in the XML message so as to enable the reader with some clues..

I was wondering whether I have any other better solution here..
