Command line arguments

The following command line parameters can be used when starting the syslog executable, Syslogd.exe, Syslogd_Manager.exe, or Syslogd_Service.exe. Parameters are not case sensitive. If you specify more than one parameter at a time, separate the values with a space.

Start-up Debug

This command creates a debug file that contains the results from the program start-up and socket initialization routines. The debug file is created in the installation directory, and the file name is based on the program file it was used with (as described below).

This debug file can help you troubleshoot the following issues:

  • if the program does not appear to be receiving messages on the port specified by the Inputs setup option, check the start-up debug file to ensure that the sockets initialized correctly.
  • If the program appears to crash on start-up, this option can help locate the problem.

If you are running Kiwi Syslog Server as a service, the service can't be provided with a command line argument. Use the DebugStart registry entry to create this file.
