daily.pl of fml4 is not implemented yet.
Currently use grep to parse the log file.
fml8 appends log messages continuously into the log file at $ml_home_directory by default. All log messages exist in it.
On the other hand, Unix log expires. So you cannot trace too lod messages.
Please tune parameters of expiration tools e.g. newsyslog which program differs from unix variants to variants to save log messages in at least 3 months.
Unix uses syslog mechanism. To redirect all messages to /var/log/messages, set the following:
[/etc/syslog.conf] *.* /var/log/messages
Also, fml8 can use syslog mechanism.
[/var/spool/ml/elena/config.cf] log_type = syslog
To use these configuration, all messages are centralized to /var/log/messages file.
% tail -F /var/spool/ml/elena/log | grep 'PATTERN' | tee FILE
