Last change on this file since 821 was 821, checked in by Bruno Cornec, 14 years ago

Addition of busybox 1.2.1 as a mindi-busybox new package
This should avoid delivering binary files in mindi not built there (Fedora and Debian are quite serious about that)

8config CONFIG_SYSLOGD
9    bool "syslogd"
10    default n
11    help
12      The syslogd utility is used to record logs of all the
13      significant events that occur on a system.  Every
14      message that is logged records the date and time of the
15      event, and will generally also record the name of the
16      application that generated the message.  When used in
17      conjunction with klogd, messages from the Linux kernel
18      can also be recorded.  This is terribly useful,
19      especially for finding what happened when something goes
20      wrong.  And something almost always will go wrong if
21      you wait long enough....
22
23config CONFIG_FEATURE_ROTATE_LOGFILE
24    bool "Rotate message files"
25    default n
26    depends on CONFIG_SYSLOGD
27    help
28      This enables syslogd to rotate the message files
29      on his own. No need to use an external rotatescript.
30
31config CONFIG_FEATURE_REMOTE_LOG
32    bool "Remote Log support"
33    default n
34    depends on CONFIG_SYSLOGD
35    help
36      When you enable this feature, the syslogd utility can
37      be used to send system log messages to another system
38      connected via a network.  This allows the remote
39      machine to log all the system messages, which can be
40      terribly useful for reducing the number of serial
41      cables you use.  It can also be a very good security
42      measure to prevent system logs from being tampered with
43      by an intruder.
44
45config CONFIG_FEATURE_IPC_SYSLOG
46    bool "Circular Buffer support"
47    default n
48    depends on CONFIG_SYSLOGD
49    help
50      When you enable this feature, the syslogd utility will
51      use a circular buffer to record system log messages.
52      When the buffer is filled it will continue to overwrite
53      the oldest messages.  This can be very useful for
54      systems with little or no permanent storage, since
55      otherwise system logs can eventually fill up your
56      entire filesystem, which may cause your system to
57      break badly.
58
59config CONFIG_FEATURE_IPC_SYSLOG_BUFFER_SIZE
60    int "    Circular buffer size in Kbytes (minimum 4KB)"
61    default 16
62    depends on CONFIG_FEATURE_IPC_SYSLOG
63    help
64      This option sets the size of the circular buffer
65      used to record system log messages.
66
67config CONFIG_LOGREAD
68    bool "logread"
69    default y
70    depends on CONFIG_FEATURE_IPC_SYSLOG
71    help
72      If you enabled Circular Buffer support, you almost
73      certainly want to enable this feature as well.  This
74      utility will allow you to read the messages that are
75      stored in the syslogd circular buffer.
76
77config CONFIG_FEATURE_LOGREAD_REDUCED_LOCKING
78    bool "logread double buffering"
79    default n
80    depends on CONFIG_LOGREAD
81    help
82      'logread' ouput to slow serial terminals can have
83      side effects on syslog because of the semaphore.
84      This option make logread to double buffer copy
85      from circular buffer, minimizing semaphore
86      contention at some minor memory expense.
87
88config CONFIG_KLOGD
89    bool "klogd"
90    default n
91    depends on CONFIG_SYSLOGD
92    help
93      klogd is a utility which intercepts and logs all
94      messages from the Linux kernel and sends the messages
95      out to the 'syslogd' utility so they can be logged.  If
96      you wish to record the messages produced by the kernel,
97      you should enable this option.
98
99config CONFIG_LOGGER
100    bool "logger"
101    default n
102    help
103        The logger utility allows you to send arbitrary text
104        messages to the system log (i.e. the 'syslogd' utility) so
105        they can be logged.  This is generally used to help locate
106        problems that occur within programs and scripts.
