         Syslogd reads and logs messages to the system console, log files, other
         machines and/or users as specified by its configuration file.  The
         options are as follows:
         -V      Print version number and exit.
         --help  Display help information and exit.
         -d      Enter debug mode. syslogd does not put itself in the background,
                 does not fork and shows debug information.
         -a      Specify additional sockets from that syslogd has to listen to.
                 This is needed if you are going to let some daemon run within a
                 chroot()'ed environment. You can specify up to 19 additional
         -f, --rcfile=FILE
                 Specify the pathname of an alternate configuration file; the
                 default is system specific and displayed in the help output.
                 Specify the pathname of an alternate configuration directory; the
                 default is system specific and displayed in the help output.
         -h, --hop
                 Enable forwarding remote messages. By default syslogd will not
                 forward messages it receives from remote hosts.
         -l      A colon-seperated lists of hosts which should be considered
                 local; they are logged by their hostnames instead by their FQDN.
         -m, --mark=INTERVAL/fP
                 Select the number of minutes between ''mark'' messages; the
                 default is 20 minutes. Setting it to 0 disables timestamps.
         -n, --no-detach
                 Suppress backgrounding and detachment of the daemon from its con-
                 trolling terminal.
         -p, --socket=PATH
                 Specify the pathname of an alternate log socket.  The default is
                 systemspecific and displayed in the help output.
         -r, --inet
                 Enable to receive remote messages using an internet domain
                 socket.  The default is to not receive any messages from the net-
                 work. Older version always accepted remote messages.
         Syslogd reads its configuration file when it starts up and whenever it
         receives a hangup signal.  For information on the format of the configu-
         ration file, see syslog.conf(5).
         Syslogd reads messages from the UNIX domain socket /dev/log, from an
         Internet domain socket specified in /etc/services, and from the one of
         the special devices /dev/klog or /proc/kmsg depending on the system (to
         read kernel messages). In a GNU/Linux system it will not parse the Sys- and use it to annotate the kernel messages.
         Syslogd creates the file /var/run/, and stores its process id
         there.  This can be used to kill or reconfigure syslogd.
         The message sent to syslogd should consist of a single line.  The message
         can contain a priority code, which should be a preceding decimal number
         in angle braces, for example, '<5.>' This priority code should map into
         the priorities defined in the include file <sys/syslog.h>.


         /etc/syslog.conf     The configuration file.
         /var/run/  The process id of current syslogd.
         /dev/log             Name of the UNIX domain datagram log socket.
         /dev/klog, /proc/kmsg
                              The kernel log device.


         logger(1), syslog(3), services(5), syslog.conf(5)


         The syslogd command appeared in 4.3BSD.
