Enabling syslog Logging for IPQoS Messages

To record IPQoS boot-time messages, you need to modify the /etc/syslog.conf file as shown in the next procedure.

How to Enable Logging of IPQoS Messages During Booting

  1. Become an administrator.

    For more information, see How to Use Your Assigned Administrative Rights in Oracle Solaris 11.1 Administration: Security Services.

  2. Open the /etc/syslog.conf file.
  3. Add the following text as the final entry in the file.                 /var/adm/messages

    Use tabs rather than spaces between the columns.

    The entry logs all boot-time messages that are generated by IPQoS into the /var/adm/messages file.

  4. Reboot the system to apply the messages.

Example 4-1 IPQoS Output From /var/adm/messages

When you view /var/adm/messages after system reboot, your output might contain IPQoS logging messages that are similar to the following.
