OLD-SYSLOG(1) General Commands Manual OLD-SYSLOG(1)
old-syslog - make a system log entry
/usr/old/syslog [ - ] [ -p ] [ -i name ] [ -level ] [ message... ]
Note: this program is considered to be obsolete, and will not be dis-
tributed or supported in future Sun releases. See logger(1) to add
system log entries.
syslog sends the specified message (or the standard input if `-' is
specified) as a system log entry to the syslog daemon. The log entry
is sent to the daemon on the machine specified by the loghost entry in
the /etc/hosts file.
- Each line of the standard input is sent as a log entry.
-p syslog logs its process ID in addition to the other information.
Specify the name to be used as the "ident" for the log entry.
-level The message will be logged at the specified level. The level
can be specified numerically, in the range 1 through 9, or sym-
bolically using the names specified in the include file <<sys-
log.h>> (with the leading LOG_ stripped off). syslog-HELP lists
the valid symbolic level names. Only the super-user can make
log entries at levels less than or equal to SALERT.
