I'm confused what you mean by 'open ports' - Do you mean something that has a service listening on it, or a port open in iptables?While logging is good thing, to much logging is a nightmare. For the simple reason you fill up your logs with information that is useless and going over the logs is a task because you have too much useless information in them. What do you care if someone is trying to log into port(s) you don't have open?
I pretty much don't log anything. Way too much garbage and 99% of the time there is a problem it's reproducible when I can watch it with tcpdump.
