At the time simplicity and I had multiple remote sensors with
restricted network connectivity.  I would rsync, or physically
transfer, the completed logs back to a central postgres server for
import and analysis.  Real time alerting wasn't that important.

Getting the data into Postgres did facilitate the writing of some
useful SQL queries to spot odd/malicious behaviour.  If I was doing it
again I probably investigate using Postgres Foreign Data Wrappers
