I don't like my main system log being filled with these ftp info messages so I've edited /etc/syslog.conf and changed the line

*.info;mail.none;authpriv.none;cron.none /var/log/messages


*.info;mail.none;authpriv.none;cron.none;ftp.!info /var/log/messages

(then run:# /etc/init.d/syslog reload )

This prevents ftp info data being written to the log.
If I want to know what users have been logging in via ftp I just inspect the
- it shows a lot more detail! & excludes the localhost logins.

I also want to remove the clamd "SelfCheck: Database status OK." messages so I've also added
local6.!info to the line in syslog.conf
Those messages are also in the ClamAV log which is viewable from the ISPConfig monitor page.

Now I've got a really clean system log.
