ha_logd: Logging Daemon for High-Availability Linux

NAME

ha_logd - Logging Daemon for High-Availability Linux

SYNOPSIS

ha_logd [ -skdh ] [ -c configure file ]

DESCRIPTION

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