NAME
     logger -- make entries in the system log

SYNOPSIS
     logger [-is] [-f file] [-p	pri] [-t tag] [message ...]

DESCRIPTION
     Logger provides a shell command interface to the syslog(3)	system log
     module.

     Options:

     -i	      Log the process id of the	logger process with each line.

     -s	      Log the message to standard error, as well as the	system log.

     -f	file  Log the specified	file.

     -p	pri   Enter the	message	with the specified priority.  The priority may
	      be specified numerically or as a ``facility.level'' pair.	 For
	      example, ``-p local3.info'' logs the message(s) as informational
	      level in the local3 facility.  The default is ``user.notice.''

     -t	tag   Mark every line in the log with the specified tag.

     message  Write the	message	to log;	if not specified, and the -f flag is
	      not provided, standard input is logged.

     The logger	utility	exits 0	on success, and	>0 if an error occurs.

EXAMPLES
	   logger System rebooted

	   logger -p local0.notice -t HOSTIDM -f /dev/idmc
