NAME
     logger -- make entries in the system log

SYNOPSIS
     logger [-is] [-d SD] [-f file] [-m msgid] [-p pri] [-t tag] [message ...]

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

     Options:

     -d sd	Log this in the structured data (SD) field.  (sd has to be passed as one argument
		and will require careful quoting when used from the shell.)

     -f file	Log the specified file.

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

     -m msgid	The MSGID used for the message.

     -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''.

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

     -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,
		standard input is logged.

EXIT STATUS
     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

SEE ALSO
     syslog(3), syslogd(8)

STANDARDS
     The logger utility conforms to IEEE Std 1003.2-1992 (``POSIX.2'').
