Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 19889
buggy syslogd config
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:17:03 EDT
In RH 6.2, syslogd used to log CROND crontab jobs to /var/log/cron
and the rest to /var/log/messages.
in RH7, cron is still valid but messages is flooded by things that don't
have their place in it: CROND entries are duplicated, once in cron, once
in messages, with the same config than in 6.2.
If I use something like :
and the crontab line stays :
then CROND messages are no longer logged anywhere.
According to the documentation of syslogd and syslogd.conf, this should be
considered as a bug.
