     ncalogd.conf - NCA logging configuration file


     The ncalogd.conf is used to configure Solaris Network  Cache
     and  Accelerator  ("NCA")  logging.  The  file  contains two
     fields, key and value.

     The status key is used to indicate if the user wants to have
     NCA  logging  turned  on.  If  the  value  of  status key is
     enabled, then NCA logging will be turned on. If the value of
     the  status  key  is  disabled, then NCA logging will not be
     invoked. The default value is disabled.

     The logd_path_name key specifies the  absolute  pathname  of
     the  log  file.  The log file must be a raw device without a
     filesystem or a file on a local  file  system.  The  default
     value  is  /var/nca/log.  logd_path_name  can also contain a
     whitespace-delimited list of values for multiple  log  files
     to  a  maximum of 16. If you specify multiple log files, you
     must enclose the list in quotation marks ("). With  multiple
     files,  NCA  logging moves to the next file on the list once
     the file size specified by logd_file_size has been  reached.
     When  the last file is full, NCA logging rotates back to the
     first file in the list. A pointer to the current log file is
     stored in /var/nca/current.

     The logd_file_size key specifies the value of the file size,
     in  bytes,  allowed  for  each  log file specified in by the
     logd_path_name key. The default value is 1000000 bytes.

     In order to implement changes to the ncalogd.conf file,  you
     will need to stop and start NCA logging or reboot.

     NCA stores logs in a  binary  format.  Use  the  ncab2clf(1)
     utility  to convert the log from a binary format to the Com-
     mon Log File format.

     Example 1: A Sample ncalogd.conf File

     The following is a sample ncalogd.conf file  that  specifies
     three log files:

     Note that there is no NCA logging daemon.  Logging  is  per-
