Today (Saturday) We will make some minor tuning adjustments to MySQL.

You may experience 2 up to 10 seconds "glitch time" when we restart MySQL. We expect to make these adjustments around 1AM Eastern Daylight Saving Time (EDT) US.

Location and name of SYSLOG in SUSE Linux

Esteemed listers,

Where is the location of SYSLOG file?

In etc/auditd.conf script, the log_file location is '/var/log/audit/audit.log' as below. Is this the location where SYSLOG is stored?

Thank you in advance,



log_file = /var/log/audit/audit.log
log_format = RAW
priority_boost = 3
flush = INCREMENTAL
freq = 20
num_logs = 4
dispatcher = /usr/sbin/audispd
disp_qos = lossy
max_log_file = 5
max_log_file_action = ROTATE
space_left = 75
space_left_action = SYSLOG
action_mail_acct = root
admin_space_left = 50
admin_space_left_action = SUSPEND
disk_full_action = SUSPEND
disk_error_action = SUSPEND

Have a look into /etc/*syslog.conf; name dependig on the syslog version used. Here, or in the included files, the log files are identified, like
Code:
*.notice;authpriv.none;kern.debug;lpr.info;mail.crit;news.err   /var/log/messages
security.*                                      /var/log/security
auth.info;authpriv.info                         /var/log/auth.log
mail.info                                       /var/log/maillog

On newer SUSE and openSUSE systems, they use systemd. You can install rsyslog and get a /var/log/messages file (for example) and/or the ability to send logs to a remote syslogger, etc...

It's one of the bigger gripes against systemd. It uses its own binary database to house logs. So normally you run a command, journalctl, (if you don't have rsyslog installed) to see the logs.

In /etc/auditd.conf script
  1. Does this option 'space_left_action = SYSLOG' send log messages to SYSLOG?

  2. Does this option 'space_left_action = EMAIL' send log messages to SYSLOG and email accounts specified?
Thanks,

I think I got the answers for these 2 questions.

When I restarted auditd I get a message saying 'exit status of parent...' as below. I expected to see 'Starting auditd' only. Is this normal?
Thanks,

Code:
 XXXXX:/#/etc/init.d/auditd restart
  
 Shutting down auditd
 Starting auditd startproc; exit status of parent of /sbin/auditd: 6
