NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     strerr - STREAMS error logger daemon

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     strerr receives error log messages	from the STREAMS log driver (log(7))
     and appends them to a log file.  The error	log files produced reside in
     the directory /var/adm/streams, and are named error.mm<b>-dd,	where mm is
     the month and dd is the day of the	messages contained in each log file.

     The format	of an error log	message	is:

	  <seq>	<time> <ticks> <flags> <mid> <sid> <text>

     <seq>     error sequence number

     <time>    time of message in hh:mm:ss

     <ticks>   time of message in machine ticks	since boot priority level

     <flags>   T : the message was also	sent to	a tracing process
	       F : indicates a fatal error
	       N : send	mail to	the system administrator

     <mid>     module ID number	of source

     <sid>     sub-ID number of	source

     <text>    formatted text of the error message

     Messages that appear in the error log are intended	to report exceptional
     conditions	that require the attention of the system administrator.	 Those
     messages which indicate the total failure of a STREAMS driver or module
     should have the F flag set.  Those	messages requiring the immediate
     attention of the administrator have the N flag set, which causes the
     error logger to send the message to the system administrator via mail.
     The priority level	usually	has no meaning in the error log, but has
     meaning if	the message is also sent to a tracer process.

     Once initiated, strerr continues to execute until terminated by the user.
     It	is commonly executed asynchronously.

NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

     Only one strerr process at	a time is permitted to open the	STREAMS	log

     If	a module or driver is generating a large number	of error messages,
     running the error logger causes a degradation in STREAMS performance.  If
     a large burst of messages are generated in	a short	time, the log driver
     may not be	able to	deliver	some of	the messages.  This situation is
     indicated by gaps in the sequence numbering of the	messages in the	log
