NAME
       implogd - IMP logger process

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/sbin/implogd [ -d ]

DESCRIPTION
       Implogd	is  program  which  logs  error  messages  from the IMP, placing them in the file
       /usr/adm/implog.

       Entries in the file are variable length.  Each log entry has a fixed length header of  the
       form:

       struct sockstamp {
	    short     sin_family;
	    u_short   sin_port;
	    struct    in_addr sin_addr;
	    time_t    sin_time;
	    int  sin_len;
       };

       followed,  possibly,  by the message received from the IMP.  Each time the logging process
       is started up it places a time stamp entry in the file (a header with sin_len field set to
       0).

       The  logging process will catch only those message from the IMP which are not processed by
       a protocol module, e.g. IP.  This implies the log should contain only  status  information
       such as ``IMP going down'' messages, ``host down'' and other error messages, and, perhaps,
       stray NCP messages.
