After updating your local copy of the tree, you can see the sources in plugin/syslog, which have completely replaced plugin/logging_syslog.
To check to see if your build or distribution of Drizzle has this module available, run the the drizzled binary with the --help option, and look for lines referring to "syslog", like this:
$PREFIX/sbin/drizzled --help | grep syslog
You should see something similar to this:
--syslog-ident=name --syslog-facility=name --syslog-logging-enable --syslog-logging-priority=name --syslog-logging-threshold-slow[=#] --syslog-logging-threshold-big-resultset[=#] --syslog-logging-threshold-big-examined[=#] --syslog-errmsg-enable --syslog-errmsg-priority=name syslog-ident drizzled syslog-facility local0 syslog-logging-enable false syslog-logging-priority info syslog-logging-threshold-slow 0 syslog-logging-threshold-big-resultset 0 syslog-logging-threshold-big-examined 0 syslog-errmsg-enable false syslog-errmsg-priority warning
The lines beginning with the double dash are options, which can be specified on the drizzled command line, or in the drizze server configuration files. The lines without the double dash are server variables, which can be examined and sometimes set from a SQL prompt or other Drizzle client. Next to the server variables are their current value. Notice that both syslog-logging-enable and syslog-errmsg-enable default to false.
The next post will be a quick overview of the UNIX syslog, and how this module works with it.
