/var/adm/messages

Hi,

No log entry is found in messages files. The file size is 0. We are using Solaris 9. Anyone knows what could be wrong.
# 2  
syslogd is running?
# 3  
Yes.

# ps -ef | grep syslogd
root 621 1 0 Sep 15 ? 0:46 /usr/sbin/syslogd
root 597 29560 0 07:39:29 pts/1 0:00 grep syslogd

But we are getting this log in the message file now:

# more messages
Sep 18 04:00:04 ss.d[16665]: [ID 936420 daemon.error] VSL_PR_NSLOT: Process table full
Sep 18 04:00:04 ss.d[16669]: [ID 936420 daemon.error] VSL_PR_NSLOT: Process table full

Helo.
Check /etc/syslog.conf to see what you are logging and where.
Regards.

/var/adm/messages vs /var/log/messages

The /var/adm/messages in Solaris seem to log more system messages/errors compared to /var/log/messages in Linux. I checked the log level in Linux and they seem OK. Is there any other log file that contains the messages or is it just that Linux doesn't log great many things? (2 Replies)
