IMPLOGD(8C)                                                        IMPLOGD(8C)



NAME
       implogd - IMP logger process

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/implogd [ -d ]

DESCRIPTION
       Implogd  is  program  which logs messages from the IMP, placing them in
       the file /usr/adm/implog.

       Entries in the file are variable length.  Each log entry  has  a  fixed
       length header of the form:

       struct sockstamp {
            short     sin_family;
            u_short   sin_port;
            struct    in_addr sin_addr;
            time_t    sin_time;
            int  sin_len;
       };

       followed,  possibly,  by  the message received from the IMP.  Each time
       the logging process is started up it places a time stamp entry  in  the
       file (a header with sin_len field set to 0).

       The  logging  process  will catch only those message from the IMP which
       are not processed by a protocol module, e.g. IP.  This implies the  log
       should  contain only status information such as ``IMP going down'' mes-
       sages and, perhaps, stray NCP messages.

SEE ALSO
       imp(4P), implog(8C)

BUGS
       The messages should probably  be  sent  to  the  system  error  logging
       process instead of maintaining yet another log file.
