7menu "System Logging Utilities"
11config SYSLOGD
12    bool "syslogd"
13    default y
14    help
15      The syslogd utility is used to record logs of all the
16      significant events that occur on a system. Every
17      message that is logged records the date and time of the
18      event, and will generally also record the name of the
19      application that generated the message. When used in
20      conjunction with klogd, messages from the Linux kernel
21      can also be recorded. This is terribly useful,
22      especially for finding what happened when something goes
23      wrong. And something almost always will go wrong if
24      you wait long enough....
27    bool "Rotate message files"
28    default y
29    depends on SYSLOGD
30    help
31      This enables syslogd to rotate the message files
32      on his own. No need to use an external rotatescript.
35    bool "Remote Log support"
36    default y
37    depends on SYSLOGD
38    help
39      When you enable this feature, the syslogd utility can
40      be used to send system log messages to another system
41      connected via a network. This allows the remote
42      machine to log all the system messages, which can be
43      terribly useful for reducing the number of serial
44      cables you use. It can also be a very good security
45      measure to prevent system logs from being tampered with
46      by an intruder.
49    bool "Support -D (drop dups) option"
50    default y
51    depends on SYSLOGD
52    help
53      Option -D instructs syslogd to drop consecutive messages
54      which are totally the same.
57    int "Read buffer size in bytes"
58    default 256
59    range 256 20000
60    depends on SYSLOGD
61    help
62      This option sets the size of the syslog read buffer.
63      Actual memory usage increases around five times the
64      change done here.
67    bool "Circular Buffer support"
68    default y
69    depends on SYSLOGD
70    help
71      When you enable this feature, the syslogd utility will
72      use a circular buffer to record system log messages.
73      When the buffer is filled it will continue to overwrite
74      the oldest messages. This can be very useful for
75      systems with little or no permanent storage, since
76      otherwise system logs can eventually fill up your
77      entire filesystem, which may cause your system to
78      break badly.
81    int "Circular buffer size in Kbytes (minimum 4KB)"
82    default 16
83    range 4 2147483647
84    depends on FEATURE_IPC_SYSLOG
85    help
86      This option sets the size of the circular buffer
87      used to record system log messages.
89config LOGREAD
90    bool "logread"
91    default y
92    depends on FEATURE_IPC_SYSLOG
93    help
94      If you enabled Circular Buffer support, you almost
95      certainly want to enable this feature as well. This
96      utility will allow you to read the messages that are
97      stored in the syslogd circular buffer.
100    bool "Double buffering"
101    default y
102    depends on LOGREAD
103    help
104      'logread' ouput to slow serial terminals can have
105      side effects on syslog because of the semaphore.
106      This option make logread to double buffer copy
107      from circular buffer, minimizing semaphore
108      contention at some minor memory expense.
110config KLOGD
111    bool "klogd"
112    default y
113    help
114      klogd is a utility which intercepts and logs all
115      messages from the Linux kernel and sends the messages
116      out to the 'syslogd' utility so they can be logged. If
117      you wish to record the messages produced by the kernel,
118      you should enable this option.
121    bool "Use the klogctl() interface"
122    default y
123    depends on KLOGD && PLATFORM_LINUX
124    help
125      The klogd applet supports two interfaces for reading
126      kernel messages. Linux provides the klogctl() interface
127      which allows reading messages from the kernel ring buffer
128      independently from the file system.
130      If you answer 'N' here, klogd will use the more portable
131      approach of reading them from /proc or a device node.
132      However, this method requires the file to be available.
134      If in doubt, say 'Y'.
136config LOGGER
137    bool "logger"
138    default y
139    select FEATURE_SYSLOG
140    help
141        The logger utility allows you to send arbitrary text
142        messages to the system log (i.e. the 'syslogd' utility) so
143        they can be logged. This is generally used to help locate
144        problems that occur within programs and scripts.
