#
*.err;kern.debug;auth.notice;user.none          /dev/console
*.err;kern.debug;daemon,auth.notice;mail.crit;user.none /var/adm/messages
lpr.debug                                       /var/adm/lpd-errs

*.alert;kern.err;daemon.err;user.none           operator
*.alert;user.none                               root
*.emerg;user.none                               *

# for loghost machines, to have authentication messages (su, login, etc.)
# logged to a file, un-comment out the following line and adjust the 
# file name as appropriate.
#
# if a non-loghost machine chooses to have such messages 
# sent to the loghost machine, un-comment out the following line.
#
auth.notice                     /var/log/authlog
mail.debug                      /var/log/syslog

# following line for compatibility with old sendmails. they will send
# messages with no facility code, which will be turned into "user" messages
# by the local syslog daemon. only the "loghost" machine needs the following
# line, to cause these old sendmail log messages to be logged in the
# mail syslog file.
#
user.alert                       /var/log/syslog
#
# non-loghost machines will use the following lines to cause "user"
# log messages to be logged locally.
#
user.err                         /dev/console
user.err                         /var/adm/messages
user.alert                       `root, operator'
user.emerg                       *
