Msysklogd is a small and simple syslog and kernel log daemon. It does not need any configuration file and does not write any files.

It just writes all messages to standard out (descriptor 1) or to a remote host. I recommend to use it with a powerful logging service such as multilog from daemontools.

The idea and some code is from Olaf Dreesen's od_syslog. Since version 0.6 msysklogd needs libowfat. Even if it is possible to link msysklogd against the glibc I strongly recommend to use the dietlibc from Felix von Leitner.

Installation:

make
make install

For supervise or minit create a user syslog with primary group syslog (or nogroup) and create /sysklogd/run:

#!/bin/sh
exec 2>&1
exec /usr/sbin/sysklogd -c 1 -k /var/log/boot.msg -m 30

Create /sysklogd/log/run:

#!/bin/sh
exec setuidgid syslog multilog t '-*' '+kern:*' /var/log/klog '+*' '-kern:*' /var/log/syslog
