postlog - Postfix-compatible logging utility
SYNOPSISpostlog [-iv] [-cconfig_dir] [-ppriority][-ttag]
The postlog command implements a Postfix-compatible log-
ging interface for use in, for example, shell scripts.
By default, postlog logs the text given on the command
line as one record. If no text is specified on the command
line, postlog reads from standard input and logs each
input line as one record.
Logging is sent to syslogd(8); when the standard error
stream is connected to a terminal, logging is sent there
The following options are implemented:
Read the main.cf configuration file in the named
directory instead of the default configuration
-i Include the process ID in the logging tag.
Specifies the logging severity: info (default),
warn, error, fatal, or panic.
-ttag Specifies the logging tag, that is, the identifying
name that appears at the beginning of each logging
-v Enable verbose logging for debugging purposes. Mul-
tiple -v options make the software increasingly
syslogd(8) syslog daemon.
