ha_logd - Logging Daemon for High-Availability Linux
ha_logd [-s] [-k] [-d] [-h] [-cfile]
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.
The following options are supported:
Stop (kill) the daemon
Daemonize (without this option,
will run in the foreground)
Show a brief usage message
Configuration file. You may configure a regular log file, debug log file, log facility, and entity. For details, see the example
file found in the documentation.
