Logging Network Problems

If you suspect a routing daemon malfunction, you can log its actions, including all packet transfers when you start up the routed daemon.

How to Log Network Problems

  1. Become superuser.

  2. Create a log file of routing daemon actions by typing the following command at a command-line prompt.

    # /usr/sbin/in.routed /var/logfilename

Caution – Caution –

On a busy network, this command can generate almost continuous output.
