Description Dave Jones 2006-09-29 18:11:26 EDT
Every night at midnight, syslog stops logging the kernel ring buffer to

I have to restart it by hand every morning.

klogd is still running.

if I strace it, I see it is still writing to fd 1 (socket:[82123])
Hmm, the action of strace'ing it also made it start spewing stuff to
/var/log/messages again.

I've noticed this because this is my firewall box, and usually, I see the
iptables messages in the daily mails from logwatch. Recently, that part of the
logwatch mails has been suspiciously absent.

Does the problem still persist?
