7 syslog-ng reads and logs messages to the system console, log
8 files, other machines and/or users as specified by its
9 configuration file.

11 The configuration file is read at startup and is reread after
12 receipt of a hangup (HUP) signal. When reloading the
13 configuration file, all destination files are closed and
14 reopened as appropriate. For more information about the
15 configuration file, see syslog-ng.conf(5).
16
17 Typically messages are sent to syslog-ng via a Unix domain
18 socket (/dev/log) or via UDP, to port 514 or to whatever
19 syslog/udp is defined to be in /etc/services. To receive
20 messages from the kernel, /dev/klog is opened for reading.
21
22 Messages sent to syslog-ng should be an entire line, prefixed
23 by a pri- ority code in between '<' and '>'. Definititions
24 of the recognised values can be found in the include file
25 <sys/syslog.h>.
26
27 syslog-ng can be configured to pass messages on to other
28 syslog-ng's and when doing so, it sends the message on with the
29 priority as a pre- fix.
