       eli - error log initialization program

       eli [ options ]

       The command initializes error logging.  This command enables error logging of hardware and system-related error packets, or error messages,
       from the kernel errorlog buffer.  It can also disable error logging, reconfigure error logging parameters, or initialize the kernel  error-
       log buffer.

       -d     Disables error logging.

       -e     Enables error logging in multiuser mode.

       -f     Forces the subsequent option; the system will not prompt.  This is the only command option you can use with another option.

       -h     Prints information about the command.

       -i     Initializes the kernel errorlog buffer.  The previous contents of the errorlog buffer are lost.

       -l     Logs a one-line status message to the kernel errorlog buffer.

       -n     Only supported for local error logging.  Disables logging error packets to disk by the daemon. High priority error messages continue
	      to be printed at the console.  Note that error log packets can be viewed by using the option in real time, but are never written	to
	      the disk.  For this reason, this option is rarely used.

       -q     Suppresses the periodic display, on the console, of the missed error message that results from a full kernel errorlog buffer.

       -r     Reconfigures error logging.  Use this option after changing the file.

       -s     Enables error logging in single-user mode.

       -w     Enables the missed error message to appear on the console every 15 minutes.  This option is the opposite of

       This example logs a one-line message into the errorlog file.
       eli -f -l "This is a test message"
       This example logs a message, up to and including the first new line, from the file
       eli -f -l < myfile > /dev/null

       You must have superuser privileges to use the command.

       Only the -f option can be used with other options.  You must use the syntax shown in the examples above.

       eli: Request Aborted.
       The requested action was aborted.  The reason for the aborted command is included with the output.

cachefslog - Cache File System logging SYNOPSIS
logfile| cachefs_mount_point DESCRIPTION
The command is used to enable or disable logging for a cachefs_mount_point. When the command is used without any options, it displays the logfile. The logfile contains information on the operation performed on a cachefs_mount_point and statistics used by to get the working set size of cache directory. The specified logfile will contain information for all the CacheFS mount points using the same cache direc- tory. A logfile and a cache directory have a 1-to-1 mapping; that is, even if a cache directory is removed and recreated with the same name, the logfile used in the previous instance of the cache directory cannot be reused with the new cache directory. Enabling logging may have performance impact, even if minimal, on the operations for all the CacheFS mount points using the same cache directory. The command is mainly used for debugging purposes. Options The following options are supported. You must be a superuser to use the and options. Specify the logfile to be used. Halt logging. Operands cachefs_mount_point A mount point of a cache file system. RETURN VALUE
returns the following values: Success. non-zero An error occurred. EXAMPLES
1. Checking the logging of a directory. This example checks if the CacheFS file system is being logged: 2. Changing the logfile. This example changes the logfile of to 3. Verifying the change of a logfile. This example verifies the change of the previous example: 4. Halting the logging of a directory. This example halts logging for the directory: AUTHOR
