Syslog seems pretty reasonable, although not everything you might want goes thru there.

In my environment, I patched cfengine to use the "local1" facility (to seperate cfengine messages from other noise) and dump local1 to a specific file (/var/log/cfengine.log). I then run swatch against that log file and have swatch report certain strings or any message that went at the .err priority or higher.

I also have certain classes that, when defined, kick off shell commands that generate emails to system admins (and sometimes their pagers). This is useful for situations that might not show up in the syslogs, or as a 'just to be sure' notification for really dire situations.
