postlog - Postfix-compatible logging utility


   postlog [-iv] [-c config_dir] [-p priority] [-t tag] [text...]


   The   postlog(1)   command   implements  a  Postfix-compatible  logging
   interface for use in, for example, shell scripts.

   By default, postlog(1) logs the text given on the command line  as  one
   record.  If  no text is specified on the command line, postlog(1) reads
   from standard input and logs each input line as one record.

   Logging is sent to  syslogd(8);  when  the  standard  error  stream  is
   connected to a terminal, logging is sent there as well.

   The following options are implemented:

   -c config_dir
          Read  the  configuration  file  in  the named directory
          instead of the default configuration directory.

   -i     Include the process ID in the logging tag.

   -p priority (default: info)
          Specifies the logging severity: info,  warn,  error,  fatal,  or
          panic.  With Postfix 3.1 and later, the program will pause for 1
          second after reporting a fatal or  panic  condition,  just  like
          other Postfix programs.

   -t tag Specifies  the  logging  tag, that is, the identifying name that
          appears at the beginning of each logging record. A  default  tag
          is used when none is specified.

   -v     Enable  verbose  logging  for  debugging  purposes.  Multiple -v
          options make the software increasingly verbose.


          Directory with the file.


   The following  parameters  are  especially  relevant  to  this

   The  text  below provides only a parameter summary. See postconf(5) for
   more details including examples.

   config_directory (see 'postconf -d' output)
          The default  location  of  the  Postfix  and
          configuration files.

   syslog_facility (mail)
          The syslog facility of Postfix logging.

   syslog_name (see 'postconf -d' output)
          The  mail  system  name that is prepended to the process name in
          syslog  records,  so  that   "smtpd"   becomes,   for   example,


   postconf(5), configuration parameters
   syslogd(8), syslog daemon
