NAME

       socklog-check - checks for the availability of a socklog(8) service.

SYNOPSIS

       socklog-check [-v] [unix [address]]

DESCRIPTION

       socklog-check  attempts  to  connect  to  a socklog(8) unix service and
       reports whether the connection attempt succeeded or not.

       It connects to the datagram oriented unix domain  socket  address,  and
       reports  success through the return code.  If address is not specified,
       socklog-check attempts to connect to /dev/log.

       When running services  that  use  the  syslog  facility  under  runit’s
       service  supervision,  socklog-check  should be added to the top of the
       service’s run script to ensure that no syslog  messages  are  generated
       until a syslog service is up and running to process the messages, e.g.:

        #!/bin/sh
        socklog-check || exit 1
        exec service_using_syslog

OPTIONS

       -v     verbose.  Print verbose message to standard error.

EXIT CODES

       On success socklog-check returns 0.

       On error, socklog-check prints a message to standard  error  and  exits
       111.
