[erlang-questions] logging to syslog
Thu Oct 4 21:00:58 CEST 2007
i'm trying to use the syslog package from the user contributions section of
the erlang website to log errors to syslog. the module compiles and runs fine,
produces no complaints, but i never see any of its log messages show up in
the system log files (/var/log/messages, in my case).
i've looked through the code, and read the RFC, and i have every reason to
believe that the code is correct. especially since i can't seem to write to
syslog using netcat to send example messages from the RFC, either. the
logger(1) command (using either unix stream or datagram methods), and
python's syslog module both do work, so syslogd appears to be sane.
so i'm wondering if there is some subtlety in usage or configuration that
i'm missing here? does anybody have any tips?
