LOG(9)                   BSD Kernel Developer's Manual                  LOG(9)

NAME
     log -- log a message from the kernel through the /dev/klog device

SYNOPSIS
     #include <&lt;sys/syslog.h>&gt;

     void
     log(int level, const char *format, ...);

DESCRIPTION
     The log() function allows the kernel to send messages to user processes
     listening on /dev/klog.  Usually syslogd(8) monitors /dev/klog for these
     messages and writes them to a log file.

     All messages are logged using facility LOG_KERN.  See syslog(3) for a
     listing of log levels.

SEE ALSO
     syslog(3), syslogd(8)
