SYSLOGC(8)              OpenBSD System Manager's Manual             SYSLOGC(8)

NAME
     syslogc - collect messages from syslog memory buffer

SYNOPSIS
     syslogc [-Ccoq] [-s reporting_socket] logname
     syslogc [-Cc] logname
     syslogc -q

DESCRIPTION
     syslogc collects messages from the syslogd(8) memory buffer specified by
     the logname argument.

     For syslogc to work, syslogd(8) must be configured with one or more memo-
     ry buffer logs (see syslog.conf(5) for details) and have a reporting
     socket location specified on the commandline (using the -s option to
     syslogd(8)).

     By default, syslogc will query the specified log and return it to stan-
     dard output.

     The options are as follows:

     -C      Request that the log buffer be cleared without reading it.

     -c      Request that the log buffer be cleared once it has been read.

     -o      Check whether the specified log has overflowed.  If the log has
             overflowed, then a message will be printed to stdout(4) and the
             exit status will be set to 1.

     -q      Request a list of available logs.

     -s reporting_socket
             Specify alternate reporting socket location (the default is
             /var/run/syslogd.sock).
