syslog messages


Is there any setting in the syslog.conf that I can define a string to disable certain type of message that is generated in the message file

for example I want to stop these type of messages getting generated.

This is - to my knowledge - not possible. You could only filter out messages based on severity levels, not on text content. How about filtering the logs after they are generated, with a simple "grep -v"?

It might be worth a try to explore syslog-ng, which should be possible to install on AIX (not tested). It might offer the functionality you are searching for.

I hope this helps.
