On most of my servers I have logs enabled by default unless they are under heavy usage and I need to keep disk writing down for performance considerations. Even on those I try to keep the logs on simply to use if I need to. Most of the time it is because someone has tried to gain access to the servers so I need to know the details. Other than that, I hate looking through logs.

And so does everybody (well, most everybody :-)) else. What is the way out? More automation and more intelligence done by systems, not people. Are we there yet? Not by a long shot... Will we be there? You bet!
