I normally get an hourly logcheck email notice from root each hour, but they've stopped as of yesterday. Can anyone advise me what sort of problem I should be looking for?
Thank you.

Make sure crond is still running. If not, do this:
/sbin/service crond restart

Thanks Andy! cron is running and I did the restart as well, still no luck. I'm kind of starting to worry a little about this...

You could try this:

/scripts/restartsrv_syslogd

Might help.
Thank you! That worked for a few days and the problem began again. I can just keep using that script every few days for now, but it sure would be nice to know why this just started happening after all this time.
