binlog.conf - binlogd configuration file
Are the numeric codes specified in binlog.h and the binlogd(8) refer-
ence page. An asterisk (*) specifies that all events should be
selected. The code dumpfile Specifies the recovery of the kernel binary
event log buffer from a crash dump. A severity level cannot be speci-
Filters selected events as severe, high, and low. An asterisk (*)
specifies that all events should be selected.
A local file pathname to a log file, or a remote system hostname for
remote logging of events.
The /etc/binlog.conf file is a system file that enables you to configure or
filter events that are to be logged by the binary error logger, binlogd.
The binlogd daemon ignores blank lines and lines that begin with an
octothorpe (#). You can specify # as the first character in a line to
include comments in the file or to disable an entry.
If you want the binlogd daemon to use a configuration file other than the
default, specify the file name with the following command:
# binlogd -f config_file
Note that EVM subscribes to binlog events by default, and any configuration
options you select will affect what events are available to EVM. You can
filter and select binlog events using EVM utilities, as described in the
EVM(5) reference page.
The following is a sample /etc/binlog.conf file:
# binlogd configuration file
#format of a line: event_code.priority destination
# where: event_code - see codes in binlog.h and man page,
# * = all events
# priority - severe, high, low, * = all priorities
# destination - local file pathname or remote system
/etc/binlog.auth - Authorization file for remote logging.
