I am new to nginx, and this list, and just getting started with it. So
forgive if I am lacking some facts.

Someone mentioned they wanted a good remote logging software and
syslog replacement, log rotation etc.
Do not use syslog. It sucks for all the reasons already mentioned by
others on this list - slow and unreliable.

Does nginx write logs to standard out or error? Does it write to pipes?

If it does than you can use multilog from daemontools or runit/and/or
qlogtools with srlog2 or socklog. These are fast, reliable, secure and
flexible replacements.
Take a look.

logrotate is kludge.
