NAME
msglog - message output collection from system startup or background applications SYNOPSIS
/dev/msglog DESCRIPTION
Output from system startup ("rc") scripts is directed to /dev/msglog, which dispatches it appropriately. ATTRIBUTES
See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes: +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ | ATTRIBUTE TYPE | ATTRIBUTE VALUE | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ |Availability |SUNWcsr | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ |Interface Stability |Stable | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ SEE ALSO
syslogd(1M), syslog(3C), attributes(5), sysmsg(7D) NOTES
In the current version of Solaris, /dev/msglog is an alias for /dev/sysmsg. In future versions of Solaris, writes to /dev/msglog may be directed into a more general logging mechanism such as syslogd(1M). syslog(3C) provides a more general logging mechanism than /dev/msglog and should be used in preference to /dev/msglog whenever possible.
