every day, every server sends a flood of warnings about anomalies in logs. every day, every admin ignores those because they are unactionable. this is typical alert fatigue: too much information, nothing to do with it.

we should either spend a lot of time to fix this and silence those warnings, or just remove logwatch from all servers. i would tend to do the latter.

weasel approved this if i remember correctly, i'll clean that up. from what I can tell, it's not in puppet so, ironically, i'll need to *add* logwatch to puppet to remove it. :)
