This one file contains these entries: Jan 31 icache1 syslogd 1.4.1: restart.
In our production environment the /var/log/messages file is not logging any of these events.
In every file but one there is a single line logging that syslog started up but that is all.
In our release environment, the /var/log/messages file is logging hourly failures of ntp time synchronization.
It is also logging when we stop and restart the syslog service.
/var/log/cron, cron.1, cron.2, cron.3 and cron.4 are all between 8KB and 15KB in size.
