Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Log messages are generated by operating systems and applications. These messages contain important information about the health and operation of the system. The messages are also of great significance for security management, audit-checks, and forensics in an intranet. So, a logging system that originates, relays, collects and archives log messages, must be monitored and managed just like all other components of the ICT infrastructure, to ensure that it is operating
normally i.e., the logs are being collected and archived as desired. In the Internet, some progress has been made towards the standardization of the syslog protocol but, to date, the management aspect of syslog has been neglected, for all practical purposes. In this paper, we focus the monitoring aspect of syslog applications. Some implementation of syslog applications have the functionality to generate statistics regarding the number of log messages. Such statistics is vital information to understand the operational status of syslog applications. In order to realize remote monitoring of those statistics, we discuss the design of Management Information Base and
demonstrate prototype implementation of the MIB.
