A colleague recently asked: "I am wondering whether I need to specify
the "appid" (something like "nqcg") when I connect the collector to the
syslog event source. If yes, do I specify it in the "Syslog Message
Filter" dialog? It's asking for a message filter pattern. Do I put in
something like nqcg:*? Or, do I specify my "appid" as the "Applications"
property value in the Syslog:Map Output(appid) connection mode XML node
in the "connectionMethods.xml" file?

The answer to this question lies in the Syslog Connector documentation,
mostly, and some samples are provided in the template, but it's left up
to the developer, somewhat, to figure out how to put all the pieces
