       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.

       By default, logging is sent to syslogd(8) or postlogd(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 (obsolete)
              Include the process ID in the logging tag. This flag is ignored as of Postfix  3.4,
              where the PID is always included.

       -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 program.

       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.

       import_environment (see 'postconf -d' output)
              The list of environment parameters that a privileged Postfix  process  will  import
              from a non-Postfix parent process, or name=value environment overrides.

       syslog_facility (mail)
              The syslog facility of Postfix logging.

       syslog_name (see 'postconf -d' output)
              A  prefix  that  is  prepended  to the process name in syslog records, so that, for
              example, "smtpd" becomes "prefix/smtpd".

       Available in Postfix 3.4 and later:

       maillog_file (empty)
              The name of an optional logfile that is written by the Postfix postlogd(8) service.

       postlog_service_name (postlog)
              The name of the postlogd(8) service entry in


       postconf(5), configuration parameters
       postlogd(8), Postfix logging
       syslogd(8), system logging
