After installing a new Cpanel VPS the machine was sending me e-mail that sysloged failed.
syslogd failed @ <Date>. A restart was attempted automagically.
Service Check Method: [check command]
Check whether it sysklogd present.
[~]# rpm -q sysklogd
After that re-run or run:
[~]# yum install sysklogd
Then restart the service,
[~]# /etc/init.d/syslog restart
This should solve the problem!
