logger -- make entries in the system log
logger [-cins] [-d SD] [-f file] [-m msgid] [-p pri] [-t tag] [message ...]
logger provides a shell command interface to the syslog(3) system log module. Options: -c Log to console (LOG_CONS). -d sd Log this in the structured data (SD) field. (sd has to be passed as one argument and will require careful quoting when used from the shell.) -f file Log the specified file. -i Log the process id of the logger process with each line (LOG_PID). -m msgid The MSGID used for the message. -n Open log file immediately (LOG_NDELAY). -p pri Enter the message with the specified priority. The priority may be specified numerically or as a ``facility.level'' pair. For example, ``-p local3.info'' logs the message(s) as informational level in the local3 facility. The default is ``user.notice''. -s Log the message to standard error, as well as the system log (LOG_PERROR). -t tag Mark every line in the log with the specified tag. message Write the message to log; if not specified, and the -f flag is not provided, standard input is logged.
The logger utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
