SYNOPSIS

ha_logd [-s] [-k] [-d] [-h] [-c file]

DESCRIPTION

ha_logd is a logging daemon for Linux-HA. It receives messages from a local domain socket /var/lib/heartbeat/log_daemon, and writes them to appropriate files and syslog if enabled. The reason for utilizing this logging daemon is that occasionally Heartbeat suffers from disk I/O delays. By sending log messages to a logging daemon, heartbeat can avoid such I/O delays.

OPTIONS

The following options are supported:

-s

Show ha_logd status (either running or stopped)

-k

Stop (kill) the daemon

-d

Daemonize (without this option, ha_logd will run in the foreground)

-h

Show a brief usage message

-c file

Configuration file. You may configure a regular log file, debug log file, log facility, and entity. For details, see the example ha_logd.cf file found in the documentation.

FILES
