logd(8)			 Archiveopteryx	Documentation		       logd(8)

NAME
       logd - logging server for Archiveopteryx.

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/local/sbin/logd [-f] [-c configfile]

DESCRIPTION
       The  Archiveopteryx  logd is an internal	server which receives, buffers
       and filters log entries from other parts	 of  Archiveopteryx,  so  that
       useful messages are logged, while noise is suppressed.

       Archiveopteryx's	log system uses	four log levels: Disaster, Error, Info
       and Debug.  Each	program	in Archiveopteryx sends	its  log  messages  to
       logd, which writes them to a logfile.

       If a message is logged with severity log-level (set to Info by default)
       or greater, it is immediately written to	the log	file. All messages  of
       lower severity are discarded.

       If logd receives	the SIGHUP signal, it closes and reopens its logfile.

       After  startup,	logd  changes  root  to	the directory where logfile is
       located,	 and  changes  uid  and	 gid  to  jail-user  and   jail-group.
       Therefore, jail-user must have the right	to open	logfile.

OPTIONS
       -c filename
	      Read  configuration  variables  from  filename  instead  of from
	      /usr/local/etc/archiveopteryx/archiveopteryx.conf.

       -f     Fork into	background during startup.

CONFIGURATION
       logd is configured using	archiveopteryx.conf(5).

       logd uses the following configuration variables:	log-address, log-port,
       logfile	(default  syslog/mail),	 log-level  (default  info), jail-user
       (default	aox), jail-group (default aox).

DIAGNOSTICS
       In case of error, smtpd exits with exit code 1,	an  error  message  on
       stderr and (usually more	detailed) information in the log file.

FILES
       /usr/local/etc/archiveopteryx/archiveopteryx.conf
