Re: [Condor-users] Condor_LOGS


That's very true. Although it wouldn't exactly be hard to include syslog.h either and I think would be a very useful addition to logging in condor.  For windows, logging to the eventvwr is just as easy. It really would help a lot of us if condor provided a more consist logging mechanism. Like you say, there are many tools which can parse these standard formats

And you can always use a shared filesystem, or condor_fetchlog to retreieve
a remote log. It would also be trivial to write a script that tailed() the
condor logfile and threw every line into syslog, and then use any of the
billion syslog concentrators.
