|4.2.2. Logging levels|
INN uses the modern syslog that separates messages into both levels and categories. Look in your <syslog.h> header file for a ``LOG_NEWS'' macro, and check your syslog(3) manpage to make sure that openlog takes three arguments. If it doesn't, then you will have to use the library routine and server provided in the syslog directory. This is described later. The different levels that are described in the syslog(3) manpage are confusing, so INN uses its own names for the four levels it uses: L_FATAL Fatal error, about to exit L_ERROR Error that might require attention L_NOTICE Informational notice, no action needed L_DEBUG Protocol tracing or other debugging messages Depending on how your syslog.conf(5) file is set up, you might want to change the L_xxx parameters in this section. The scanlogs script assumes that the first three categories above are each directed into separate files. See doc/newslog.5, doc/newslog.8, and syslog/syslog.conf for details. Logging is also described in more detail later.
