syslog date format

Post by Kevin Ju » Sat, 28 Sep 1996 04:00:00

Does anyone know if it's possible to configure syslog so that
the year is shown when messages are logged to the /var/log/syslog file?
If it matters, this would be on either a SunOS 4.1.3, Solaris 2.5 or
Linux 1.2.13 machine.



1. question re: /usr/adm/syslog.dated/date/lpr.log

Our system (Alpha 2100 DU 3.2c) has been running a little slower lately
so I've been checking the error logs to see if something is causing a

My lpr.log states this:
        Dec 19 11:50:13 alpha lpd[463]: pid=30025 (sig=-1,err=0)
        Dec 19 11:51:04 alpha lpd[463]: pid=21195 (sig=-1,err=0)
        Dec 19 11:51:07 alpha lpd[463]: pid=361 (sig=-1,err=0)
        Dec 19 11:51:27 alpha lpd[463]: pid=32058 (sig=-1,err=0)

I take it this is not an error but rather just a log of whenever lpd was
to print out a report? (err=0) and I assume the pid is the pid when lpd was

what does the sig=-1 mean? and what err# "could" be reported, and if the #
is reported will a plain english message be there as well? My man pages
go into the err numbers or sig numbers.
