Configuring message logging

The /etc/syslog.conf file can be edited to modify your system's message logging.

Steps

  1. Open the /etc/syslog.conf file with an editor from a client.
  2. Add one or more lines using the following format:
    facility.level <tab> action
  3. Save and close the /etc/syslog.conf file.

    The changes you made to the syslog.conf file are read automatically and are reflected in the message logging.
