Discussion on: Linux Logging Tutorial: What Are Linux Logs, How to View, Search and Centralize Them

Just as a meta-heads up, this syndication on DEV is already out-ranking the original on your site for "linux logging," "what are linux logs," and "linux logging tutorial." The canonical link is a suggestion (which Google sometimes ignores), rather than a command, and this is a case of "suggestion discarded."

This is a good post -- it could probably rank for all of those searches from the original on if you gave it enough time.

Anyway, feel free to consider or ignore as you prefer, of course. I'm just throwing it out there because I oversee a lot of organic post creation and subsequent syndication and it surprises a lot of people to learn that canonical linking doesn't always work as intended.
