Its funny you mention the zombie attempts my logs get cluttered with failed attempts nothing I worry about I considered moving the port but assumed they would eventually find it. How's the different port working for you?

or logwatch. . .

Personally, I get a bunch of dailies, etc., not to mention cron job 
outputs that I want to see, like statuses of RAIDs, outputs of 
portaudit, etc.

I read everything in the am, and quickly scan for glaring problems.

Which is why I don't run sshd on 22. . . since if there's no firewall, 
you get the zombie attempts filling up the email and miss what you need 
to know.  But that's another discussion :)

We've had this discussion before offlist, and if someone has the golden 
answer, well, let us know.
