Hi again,

sorry for next question.

I've done this, but now kernel messages will appear on console now
also (thanks to serial console support...) at same time like in
defined file.


Log message was generated by iptables log with level 6 (=KERN_INFO).

Current related config:

source s_local {
        unix-stream("/dev/log" keep-alive(yes) max-connections(100));
        unix-stream("/var/spool/postfix/dev/log" keep-alive(yes)

filter f_kern { facility(kern); };

destination d_kern { file("/var/log/kernel-$YEAR$MONTH"); };

log { source(s_local); filter(f_kern); destination(d_kern); };

destination console isn't in use.

Do I miss some configuration option? Or is this a feature? Or a bug?

Thank you very much for any help,
