cPanel/rsyslogd and syslogd

asked Feb 16, 2014 in General by redBee (760 points)
Hi all
I have a question about cPanel servers. Which is better to use rsyslogd  or syslogd? I noticed that on my  Service Manager the option rsyslod is set as "Enhanced System Logger Daemon". Is this better to use than the normal syslogd? Or can they be interchangeable. Can anyone please advise?
