    Coldfusion 9 syslog setup

      What exactly does this setting do in the CF admin configuration under the "Logging Settings" section?

          On unix, there are syslog facilities provided by various tools, such as syslog or nsyslog.  They listen on port a network port as well, but on the local host, a named pipe is provided for simplicity.  This service logs all the messages sent to it to files in /var as configured by the syslogd.conf file in /etc.

           

          For more information consult your unix man pages.

            Thanks, yes I am familar with syslog on unix. So I enabled that feature in the CF admin page. Where should I be seeing logs under /var/log? Is CF sending everything over a named pipe? I assume there is setup I need to syslogd.conf unless CF logs to the /var/log/messasges file?

              I usually debug that kind of stuff with a *.* in the syslog.conf file and put that into a file like /var/log/all.log.  Once I know which messages I want to keep I adjust accordingly.
