Garbled log lines in nightly email

Garbled log lines in nightly email

Post by Lilith E » Sat, 01 Apr 2000 04:00:00

Starting earlier this week, the nightly status emails on my
FreeBSD 3.2 box have been containing a garbled entry for the
first line or two of the important syslog summary portion of
the message.  For example, here is the first line of this
morning's log: kernel log messages:
   > , uid 1102: exited on signal 11 (core dumped)

I know where this line came from -- this is part of a valid
event line from about a week ago.  Similarly, previous emails
have contained scraps of phantom lines from earlier days.
These lines do not appear in /var/log/messages (which has
been rotated since then).  The broken lines are always the
first one or two lines of this section of the nightly email.
They do not repeat the next night (i.e., new phantom line(s)
each night).  Where is this garbage coming from?  What does
it signify?  How do I fix it?

Thank you for any help that you might be able to provide....
