Becky & Justin, Mike Schmidt, our system administrator, has discovered that the rsyslogd(8) program changed how it handles timestamps from version 4 to version 5. how it handles timestamps. Version 4 uses the timestamp in the messages as received; version 5, by default, rewrites the timestamp according to an internal template. You can determine the version of rsyslogd(8) via the command "rsyslogd -v". The solution to your problem (local timestamps instead of UTC timestamps) is to tell the rsyslogd(8) process -- via the system-logging configuration-file -- to use a different template for the LDM (one that doesn't rewrite the timestamp). This is done by adding the following line to the file "/etc/syslog.conf" (or whatever configuration-file is used): $template ldm, "%rawmsg:6:20% %hostname% %rawmsg:22:255%\n" This line must appear *before* the LDM entry, which must have " ; ldm" appended to it in order to reference the above template. For example: local0.debug /usr/local/ldm/logs/ldmd.log ; ldm Regards, Steve Emmerson Ticket Details =================== Ticket ID: NJE-906346 Department: Support LDM Priority: Normal Status: Closed
