NAME

       kmsgsd - separates iptables messages from all other kernel messages.

SYNOPSIS

       kmsgsd

DESCRIPTION

       kmsgsd  reads  messages  from the /var/lib/psad/psadfifo named pipe and
       prints any  firewall  related  log  messages  to  the  psad  data  file
       "/var/log/psad/fwdata".  psad cannot detect port scans or other suspect
       traffic without  kmsgsd  running  on  the  machine.   kmsgsd  uses  the
       psad.conf   configuration   file   which   by  default  is  located  at
       /etc/psad/psad.conf, but a different  path  can  be  specified  on  the
       command line.

OPTIONS

       -c <config-file>
              Specify  path  to  config  file  instead  of  using  the default
              configuration file /etc/psad/psad.conf.

       -D     Dump  the  configuration  values   that   kmsgd   derives   from
              /etc/psad/psad.conf (or other override files) on STDERR.

       -h     Display usage information and exit.

       -O <config-file>
              Override  config variable values that are normally read from the
              /etc/psad/psad.conf file with values from  the  specified  file.
              Multiple override config files can be given as a comma separated
              list.
