socklog-conf - sets up a socklog(8) service.

socklog-conf(8) System Manager's Manual socklog-conf(8)

NAME

socklog-conf - sets up a socklog(8) service.

SYNOPSIS

socklog-conf unix|inet|klog|ucspi-tcp acct logacct
 
socklog-conf notify acct grp

DESCRIPTION

socklog-conf creates /etc/sv if necessary and a subdirectory that runs the unix, inet, ucspi-tcp or notify service (see below for each service). Except for the notify service, socklog-conf also creates a log directory with subdirectories.
acct, logacct and grp must not contain any special characters.

UNIX SERVICE

socklog-conf unix acct logacct
Running socklog-conf with the 1st argument unix, socklog-conf creates the service directory /etc/sv/socklog-unix and the log directory /var/log/socklog.
socklog-conf arranges for socklog(8) to run under the uid and gid of acct and to listen for syslog messages on /dev/log.
It also creates automatically rotated log directories in /var/log/socklog. The logs are owned by logacct. The corresponding svlogd(8) process runs under the uid and gid of logacct.
You can add the service to system-wide service supervision through the update-service(8) program:
update-service --add /etc/sv/socklog-unix

INET SERVICE

socklog-conf inet acct logacct
Running socklog-conf with the 1st argument inet, socklog-conf creates the service directory /etc/sv/socklog-inet and the log directory /var/log/socklog-inet.
socklog-conf arranges for socklog(8) to run under the uid and gid of acct and to listen for syslog messages on the UDP socket 0.0.0.0:514.
It also creates automatically rotated log directories in /var/log/socklog-inet. The logs are owned by logacct. The corresponding svlogd(8) process runs under the uid and gid of logacct.
You can add the service to system-wide service supervision through the update-service(8) program:
update-service --add /etc/sv/socklog-inet

KLOG SERVICE

socklog-conf klog acct logacct
Running socklog-conf with the 1st argument klog, socklog-conf creates the service directory /etc/sv/socklog-klog and the log directory /var/log/socklog-klog.
socklog-conf arranges for socklog(8) to run under the uid and gid of acct and to read kernel messages from /proc/kmsg on Linux, or /dev/socklog-klog on BSD.
It also creates automatically rotated log directories in /var/log/socklog-klog. The logs are owned by logacct. The corresponding svlogd(8) process runs under the uid and gid of logacct.
You can add the service to system-wide service supervision through the update-service(8) program:
update-service --add /etc/sv/socklog-klog

UCSPI-TCP SERVICE

socklog-conf ucspi-tcp acct logacct
Running socklog-conf with the 1st argument ucspi-tcp, socklog-conf creates the service directory /etc/sv/socklog-ucspi-tcp and the log directory /var/log/socklog-ucspi-tcp.
socklog-conf arranges for tcpsvd(1) to run socklog(8) under the uid and gid of acct and to listen on the TCP socket 0.0.0.0:10116.
It also creates automatically rotated log directories in /var/log/socklog-ucspi-tcp. The logs are owned by logacct. The corresponding svlogd(8) process runs under the uid and gid of logacct.
You can add the service to system-wide service supervision through the update-service(8) program:
update-service --add /etc/sv/socklog-ucspi-tcp

NOTIFY SERVICE

socklog-conf notify acct grp
Running socklog-conf with the 1st argument notify, socklog-conf creates the service directory /etc/sv/socklog-notify.
socklog-conf arranges for uncat(1) to run under the uid and gid of acct and to listen on the named pipe /var/log/socklog/.notify. The named pipe will have mode 0620, the uid of acct and the gid of grp.
All uids running a log service that is configured to push log events to the socklog-notify service must be member of the group grp.
You can add the service to system-wide service supervision through the update-service(8) program:
update-service --add /etc/sv/socklog-notify
