    Log Qestion

    When looking at /var/log/messages, I sometimes the word MARK is listed, such as below:

    Aug 27 06:01:42 Saptech -- MARK --
    Aug 27 06:21:43 Saptech -- MARK --
    Aug 27 06:26:18 Saptech syslogd 1.4.1#11: restart.
    Aug 27 06:41:43 Saptech -- MARK --
    Aug 27 07:01:43 Saptech -- MARK --

    What does that mean?

    Uhm. It's a mark.

    It tells you that another 20 minutes are gone by. Comes in handy when you've got a lot of stuff happening then you can jump from mark to mark easily...

    You can configure the interval with the -m switch to syslogd. -m 0 switches them off completely.
