    I think a gung-ho approach is best in this situation; "Log 'em all, let the analyzer sort 'em out." :-)

    Anyway, to get the PIX logging, it's just:

    !-- facility can be anything so long as its unique to your syslog server
    logging facility 20
    !-- level 7 == debugging == most verbose
    logging trap 7
    !-- pick a victim, if no protocol/port is specified, UDP/514 is used
    logging host inside 111.222.333.444 udp/1028
    !-- Also, using TCP syslog can cause the PIX to freeze if it can't
    !-- communicate with the syslog server - once the log buffer is full
    !-- it stops passing traffic. Use UDP if at all possible.
