Re: 20040920: Possible pqact issue in LDM? (cont.)



Steven,

If you are logging pqact to a file, eg "-l file", instead of using
syslog, then the newlog won't be able to rotate your output stream.

If you are logging pqact to a file to avoid sending the log to the
rpc.ldmd LOCAL0 log, then you can make pqact use another LOCAL# facility
and use newlog to rotate that independently of ldmd.log (using Local0).

For example, if you want pqact to use LOCAL4 logging, and set that up in
syslog.conf, then you can create a pqact startup script that defines
ULOG_FACILITY_OVERRIDE as 4 before starting pqact

eg:

ULOG_FACILITY_OVERRIDE=4
export ULOG_FACILITY_OVERRIDE
pqact
