NAME - configuration-file for tntnet (8)


       tntnet(8)   uses  cxxtools  for  logging  and  is  configured  in  the  configuration-file

       Because cxxtools is a  meta-logging-library,  which  can  be  compiled  to  use  different
       logging-libraries,  the  content  of  is  dependend  of  the underlying
       logging-library.  Cxxtool has a built-in logging-library as default, which  is  documented

       The  format  of  is  line-based.   A  line  consists of a variable-name
       followed by a equals-symbol and a value.  Lines, which does not  follow  this  format  and
       lines,  which  start  with  a hash (#), are ignored.  It is recomended to prefix non-empty
       comments with a hash to make clear, that it is a comment.

       The logging-library has 5 levels for logging: fatal, error, warn, info and  debug.   Fatal
       has the highers priority and "debug" the lowest.

       Each log-message has a category.  Categories are hierarchical.  Names of subcategories are
       devided by a dot.

       Each log-message has a level and a category.  If the level of the  message  is  higher  or
       equal  to  the  level  of  the  category,  the  message is logged.  To assign a level to a
       category put a line with the word "logger", a dot, the category, the symbol  "="  and  the
       category  into  Only the first letter of the value is checked and case
       is ignored, so e.g. info can be specified with INFO, info, I or even ixxxx.  If  no  level
       is  specified  for  the  current  category,  the upper category is checked.  If nothing is
       found, the default level  is  used.  The  default  level  is  specified  by  the  variable
       "rootLogger".  If no rootLogger is specified, the level error is used.

       If  nothing  else  is specified, log-messages are printed to standard-output.  To redirect
       output to a file, specify the filename with the variable file.

       The cxxtools-logger can limit the size of the log-file by rolling log-files.  If the limit
       is  reached,  the  current file is renamed by appending ".1" to it.  If there is already a
       file with that name, this file is renamed to "*.2" and so on, until the maximum backupfile
       limit is reached.  The oldest file is deleted then.  To specify the maximum file size, set
       the variable maxfilesize.  The value specified here can be postfixed with 'k'  or  'M'  to
       specify kBytes or MBytes.  The maximum fileindex backed up is set with maxbackupindex.

       Log-messages  can  be  sent  to  another  host  in  the network with udp.  This is done by
       specifying a hostname and a port with the variable host.  The value must  be  a  hostname,
       followed by a ':' and a port.  Each log-message is sent in a single udp-message.
