Sorry I think this is not true, I think I confused this with the first situation when I did not fetch each sftp chrooted user's /dev/log with a specific syslog-ng source config,
but just the whole sftp session logs from all users wnet to facility LOCAL5 and I fetched facility LOCAL5 into one log file. But /dev/log in each sftp user's chroot dir was required for that, though.
