POSTLOG(1)									       POSTLOG(1)

       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.

       Logging is sent to syslogd(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  main.cf configuration file in the named directory instead of the default
	      configuration directory.

       -i     Include the process ID in the logging tag.

       -p priority
	      Specifies the logging severity: info (default), warn, error, fatal, or panic.

       -t tag Specifies the logging tag, that is, the identifying name that appears at the begin-
	      ning 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 soft-
	      ware increasingly verbose.

	      Directory with the main.cf file.

       The following main.cf parameters are especially relevant to this program.

       The text below provides only a parameter summary. See postconf(5) for more details includ-
       ing examples.

       config_directory (see 'postconf -d' output)
	      The default location of the Postfix main.cf and master.cf configuration files.

       syslog_facility (mail)
	      The syslog facility of Postfix logging.

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

       postconf(5), configuration parameters
       syslogd(8), syslog daemon
