Re: SyslogFacility

I'm running Linux - RH 7.3 and sysklogd-1.4.1-8.

I have the following line in syslog.conf:
local4.*        /var/log/messages/cfengine.log

I don't think syslog.conf is the problem. If you look at the syslog
debug output below you can see the that the syslog facility for the
cfengine log record is daemon and the level is error. This indicates to
me that the problem is somewhere in cfengine, not syslog or syslog.conf.

syslog debug output:

Successful select, descriptor count = 1, Activity on: 3
Message from UNIX socket: #3
Message length: 161, File descriptor: 3.
logmsg: daemon.err<27>, flags 2, from xxx, msg Nov 20 13:55:19
cfservd[29454]:  ID from connecting host: (SYNCH 1069358119 STAT
Called fprintlog, logging to FILE /var/log/messages
Calling select, active file descriptors (max 3): 3
