DebugStart

Set this Kiwi Syslog Server registry setting value to "1" to enable debug for both the Service and Manager.

Section (32-bit Windows OS) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\SolarWinds\Syslogd\Options
Section (64-bit Windows OS) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\WOW6432Node\SolarWinds\Syslogd\Options
Value (STRING) DebugStart
Enable Debug 1
Disable Debug 0
Type String

Command line value

DEBUGSTART

Applies to

Syslogd.exe, Syslogd_Service.exe & Syslogd_Manager.exe

Effect

When the program is run with this registry value set to "1", a debug file is created in the install directory. The file name will depend on the executable name (see below). The debug file will contain the results from the program start-up and socket initialization routines.

Files created

SyslogNormal = Syslogd_Startup.txt

SyslogService = Syslogd_Service_Startup.txt

SyslogManager = Syslogd_Manager_Startup.txt

When to use

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