NAME
     logger -- make entries in the system log

SYNOPSIS
     logger [-is] [-f file] [-p pri] [-t tag] [message ...]

DESCRIPTION
     Logger provides a shell command interface to the syslog(3) system log module.

     Options:

     -i       Log the process id of the logger process with each line.

     -s       Log the message to standard error, as well as the system log.

     -f file  Log the specified file.

     -p pri   Enter the message with the specified priority.  The priority may be specified
	      numerically or as a ``facility.level'' pair.  For example, ``-p local3.info'' logs
	      the message(s) as informational level in the local3 facility.  The default is
	      ``user.notice.''

     -t tag   Mark every line in the log with the specified tag.

     message  Write the message to log; if not specified, and the -f flag is not provided, stan-
	      dard input is logged.

     The logger utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.

EXAMPLES
	   logger System rebooted

	   logger -p local0.notice -t HOSTIDM -f /dev/idmc
