++ Much better than my idea below, but there would need to be a reliable way to identify the cases where any of the 150 processes fail before they get to the point of sending their UDP packet to the log server. Not hard to handle, just easy to forget...
update: On second thought, if the log data from each host is anything more than a single summary report printed at the end of each job, I would still kinda prefer my approach. If the jobs are printing progress reports at intervals, the entries submitted to a central syslog server will tend to be interleaved, and will need to be sorted out. Not a big deal, obviously, but it might be handier to have the stuff "pre-sorted" by harvesting from each machine.
