STREAMS error and trace loggers are provided for debugging and for administering STREAMS modules and drivers. This facility consists of log(7D), strace(1M), strclean(1M), strerr(1M), and the strlog(9F) function.
strace(1M) is a utility that displays the messages in a specified STREAMS log. The log to display is identified by STREAMS module ID number, a sub-ID number, and the priority level.
strlog(9F) sends formatted text to log(7D) driver. Required definitions are contained in <sys/strlog.h> and <sys/log.h>. The call specifies the STREAMS module ID number, a sub-ID number, and the priority level. A flag parameter can specify any combination of:
The message is for the error logger
The message is for the tracer
Advisory notification of a fatal error
Modifies the SL_ERROR flag to request that a copy of the message be mailed to the system administrator
Log the message to the console
Notice the message
The flags are followed by a printf(3S)-style format string, but %s, %e, %E, %g, and %G conversion specifications are not recognized. Up to NLOGARGS of numeric or character arguments can be specified.
strqget(9F) gets information about a queue or band of a queue. The information is returned in a long. The stream must be frozen by the caller when calling strqget.
strqset(9F) changes information about a queue or band of the queue. The updated information is provided in an int. If the field is read-only, EPERM is returned and the field is left unchanged. See <sys/stream.h> for valid values. The stream must be frozen by the caller when calling strqset(9F).
strerr(1M) is the streams error logger daemon.
