Logging Mechanism Updated. Now MAPI supports logging to files and syslog.
In order to log messages to syslog, mapid and/or mapicommd should be executed with the flag -s (mapid -s and/or mapicommd -s). Two different types of messages are sent to syslog, debug messages and general information messages. In /usr/local/etc/mapi/mapi.conf the syslog level can be configured. syslog_level=0 : Log only general information and not debugging messages syslog_level=1 : Log general information plus debugging information (debug messages are printed to stdout and syslog) syslog_level=2 : Log general information plus debugging information (debug messages are printed only to syslog) The default level is 2 (temporary the default level is 1). In order to log debug messages and general information messages to separate log files, syslog daemon must be configured as follows: File /etc/syslog.conf should have the following two entries: local1.info;local1.!=debug /var/tmp/info.syslog local1.debug;local1.!=info /var/tmp/debug.syslog /var/tmp/info.syslog & /var/tmp/debug.syslog are indicative names of files, where debug and information messages are appended. The /var/tmp/info.syslog & /var/tmp/debug.syslog files must exist before the syslogd daemon re-reads the /etc/syslog.conf configuration file, in order for the syslogd daemon to log messages to these files. To create these files, issue the following commands: touch /var/tmp/info.syslog touch /var/tmp/debug.syslog Then issue the following command to force the syslogd daemon to re-read its configuration file: kill -HUP <syslogd's process id> Define DEBUG is default enabled. In the future mapi configuration will have an extra flag (--enable-debug), thus a MAPI user might select if MAPI prints debug messages or no. git-svn-id: file:///home/svn/mapi/trunk@1292 8d5bb341-7cf1-0310-8cf6-ba355fef3186
