systemd has no crash log

Sometimes, CPU usage would peak on my machine for reasons I do not really understand (perhaps I run out of memory, more on this later) to the extent where I need a hard reset.

Previously, syslog contained useful information, like oom trying to kill process(es) and so I had some knowledge.

With systemd, there is nothing useful in the journal:

Jun 03 02:43:01 veyron2 crond[494]: FILE /var/spool/cron/root USER root PID 3948 job sys-hourly
-- Reboot --
Jun 03 03:25:53 veyron2 systemd-journal[135]: Allowing runtime journal files to grow to 595.4M.

Is it possible to revert to simple syslog and get useful information again?

Re: systemd has no crash log

AFAIK no, but you can still use syslog-ng of top of systemd.
