KB-9256: What is the logging subsystem and to what file is the in-memory buffer mapped to?

Question:
What is the logging subsystem and to what file is the in-memory buffer mapped to?

Answer:

DirectControl uses the operating system's syslog facility so it is operating system specific.

The watchdog information comes into syslog as an auth. Syslog directs these auth messages to the type of syslog in use like syslog-ng, rsyslog, etc. Normally, the default syslog location is /var/log/messages on a Linux system. This is also where the audit trail data is written.

When we enable debug, we will update and reconfigure the prevailing syslog to write auth.debug to /var/log/cenrttifydc.log.
