NAME

       metalog - an alternative syslog daemon

SYNTAX

       metalog       [--async]       [--daemonize]       [--consolelevel=0..7]
       [--configfile=config file] [--help] [--pidfile=pid file] [--sync]

DESCRIPTION

       Metalog is a modern replacement  for  syslogd  and  klogd.  The  logged
       messages  can  be  dispatched  according  to  their  facility, urgency,
       program name and/or Perl-compatible regular expressions. Log files  can
       be  automatically  rotated  when  they  exceed  a  certain size or age.
       External shell  scripts  (ex:  mail)  can  be  launched  when  specific
       patterns are found.
       Metalog  is  easier  to  configure  than syslogd and syslog-ng, accepts
       unlimited number of rules and has (switchable) memory bufferisation for
       maximal performance.

OPTIONS

       --async
              Improve  performance  by  using buffers (bug log files won’t get
              updated in real time)

       --daemonize
              have the server start in background (daemonization) .

       --consolelevel=0..7
              Set the console log level (Linux only).

       --configfile=config file
              Use an alternate configuration file.

       --help Output help information and exit.

       --pidfile=pid file
              Use an alternate file to store the process number.

       --sync Start in synchronous mode, with no bufferization.

FILES

       /etc/metalog.conf
       /var/run/metalog.pid
       /dev/log
