NAME
       logger - a shell command interface to the syslog(3) system log module

SYNOPSIS
       logger [options] [message]

DESCRIPTION
       logger makes entries in the system log.  It provides a shell command interface to the sys-
       log(3) system log module.

OPTIONS
       -n, --server server
              Write to the specified remote syslog server instead of to the builtin  syslog  rou-
              tines.   Unless  --udp  or --tcp is specified the logger will first try to use UDP,
              but if it fails a TCP connection is attempted.

       -d, --udp
              Use datagram (UDP) only.  By default the connection is tried to syslog port defined
              in /etc/services, which is often 514.

       -T, --tcp
              Use  stream  (TCP)  only.   By  default the connection is tried to syslog-conn port
              defined in /etc/services, which is often 601.

       -P, --port port
              Use the specified port.  When this option is not specified, the  port  defaults  to
              syslog for udp and to syslog-conn for tcp connections.

       -i, --id
              Log the process ID of the logger process with each line.

       -f, --file file
              Log the contents of the specified file.  This option cannot be combined with a com-
              mand-line message.

       -h, --help
              Display a help text and exit.

       -p, --priority priority
              Enter the message into the log with the specified priority.  The  priority  may  be
              specified  numerically  or  as  a facility.level pair.  For example, -p local3.info
              logs the  message  as  informational  in  the  local3  facility.   The  default  is
              user.notice.

       -S, --size size
              Sets  the  maximum  permitted message size. The default is 1KiB, which is the limit
              traditionally used and specified in RFC 3164.  When  selecting  a  maximum  message
              size,  it  is  important to ensure that the receiver supports the max size as well,
              otherwise messages may become truncated.

       -s, --stderr
              Output the message to standard error as well as to the system log.

       -t, --tag tag
              Mark every line to be logged with the specified tag.

       -u, --socket socket
              Write to the specified socket instead of to the builtin syslog routines.

       -V, --version
              Display version information and exit.

       --     End the argument list.  This is to allow the message to start with a hyphen (-).

       message
              Write the message to log; if not specified, and the -f flag is not provided,  stan-
              dard input is logged.

       The logger utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
