[Beowulf] Syslog Server-Traffic

I'm researching setting up a cluster and I'm curious as to whether or
not it's a good idea to set up a syslog server.   The question I have
is whether the traffic created from logging is going to slow down my
network to the point of poor performance?  What are peoples
experiences with logging.  The cluster will have a management network
and a computational network.

This is what I'm thinking:

Greater than 64 Nodes, Yes.
Greater than 64 and less than 128, Maybe?
Greater than 128 No

Any input would be great, Thanks!
