Logging Actions of the IPv4 Routing Daemon

If you suspect a malfunction of the IPv4 routing daemon, routed, you can start a log that traces the daemon's activity. The log includes all of the packet transfers when you start the routed daemon.

Create a log file that traces the routing daemon's actions as follows:

# /usr/sbin/in.routed /var/log-file-name


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

The following example shows the beginning of the log that is created when you perform the Logging Actions of the IPv4 Routing Daemon procedure.
