 System log files
Hi,

I need to find out where in AIX log files are kept. I am totally
unfamiliar with AIX and do not have access to AIX manuals.
More specifically, I need to know where I can find the equivalent
of the SunOS file '/var/log/syslog' and the SunOS file
'/var/adm/messages'.

Cheers,

Erwin.

If you want regular ol' unix syslog files, you can configure syslogd
in /etc/syslog.conf.  Here's the one that I use:

------------------------------<snip snip>-------------------------------------
#
# See the supplied /etc/syslog.conf file for copious comments.
#
*.err;kern.debug;auth.notice;user.none          /dev/console
*.err;kern.debug;daemon,auth.notice;mail.crit;user.none /var/adm/messages
lpr.debug                                       /var/adm/lpd-errs

*.alert;kern.err;daemon.err;user.none           operator
*.alert;user.none                               root

*.emerg;user.none                               *

# for loghost machines, to have authentication messages (su, login, etc.)
# logged to a file, un-comment out the following line and adjust the file name
# as appropriate.
#
# if a non-loghost machine chooses to have such messages
# sent to the loghost machine, un-comment out the following line.
#
auth.notice                     /var/log/authlog

mail.debug                      /var/log/syslog

# following line for compatibility with old sendmails.  they will send
# messages with no facility code, which will be turned into "user" messages
# by the local syslog daemon.  only the "loghost" machine needs the following
# line, to cause these old sendmail log messages to be logged in the
# mail syslog file.
#
user.alert                                      /var/log/syslog
#
# non-loghost machines will use the following lines to cause "user"
# log messages to be logged locally.
#
user.err                                        /dev/console
user.err                                        /var/adm/messages
user.alert                                      `root, operator'
user.emerg                                      *
---------------------------<end included file>----------------------------------

                                        Good luck!
