For example, all UNIX and Linux machines use the syslog, a generic logging system that is used by the operating system and applications and services to log information.
The syslog records a whole host of data, including logins, performance information, and failures reported by different hardware and systems.
It is under active development but a release date for the next version has not been announced.
For Solaris 8 and earlier you can download the file and untar it.
Then go in the new directory, and execute Like with cron, the -w option to logadm(1M) is the preferred way to modify the configuration file, but if you do edit it by hand.
In this case use "logadm -V" to check it for errors and to activate changes.
For example, one entry in the command as superuser or by assuming an equivalent role (with Log Management rights).
