I have odd problem with syslog local7, my syslog configure the syslog to be written to
it’s working just fine for years but recent days one device syslog message written on console and I don’t know why this one device syslog on console but other hundreds of devices syslog still written on the file. my question question is how I can stop that? i need syslog from that device so i don’t want to stop it but the same time i don’t want to written on my console. my Os is 64 bit Solaris.
this is my syslog.conf
# *.err;kern.notice;auth.notice /dev/sysmsg *.err;kern.debug;daemon.notice;mail.crit /var/adm/messages *.alert;kern.err;daemon.err operator *.alert root *.emerg * # if a non-loghost machine chooses to have authentication messages # sent to the loghost machine, un-comment out the following line: #auth.notice ifdef(`LOGHOST', /var/log/authlog, @loghost) mail.debug ifdef(`LOGHOST', /var/log/syslog, @loghost) # # non-loghost machines will use the following lines to cause "user" # log messages to be logged locally. # ifdef(`LOGHOST', , user.err /dev/sysmsg user.err /var/adm/messages user.alert `root, operator' user.emerg * ) local7.info /var/log/syslog_info
syslog configuration will log anything at
err level and above to the system console due to this line:
This logs everything at
err and higher,
kern messages at
notice and higher, and
auth message at
notice and higher to the system console. If your device is logging messages at these levels this would explain the console messages.
You can suppress messages from the
local7 facility using the
none qualifier, like this:
Try that and see if the console messages stop appearing.
