LOG(9)                        BSD Kernel Manual                         LOG(9)

NAME

     log, addlog - log a message from the kernel through the /dev/klog device

SYNOPSIS

     #include <sys/syslog.h>

     void
     log(int level, const char *format, ...);

     void
     addlog(const char *format, ...);

DESCRIPTION

     The log() function allows the kernel to send formatted messages to user
     processes listening on /dev/klog. Usually syslogd(8) monitors /dev/klog
     for these messages and writes them to a log file.

     All messages are formatted using printf(9), logged using facility
     LOG_KERN, and priority level level.

     The addlog() function is used to build a log message in steps, by adding
     information to an initial call to log().
