misclog evm channel

Tru64 5.1A PK6.

Output of 'evminfo -lc' is:
syslog
binlog
misclog
evmlog

'syslog', 'binlog', and 'evmlog' all have well defined daemons with '.conf' files to control their behavior. What is the underlying daemon, cron job or whatever that posts misclog events and how can I control it. It seems to monitor passively updated logfiles somehow and get updates posted as EVM events. We're being flooded with entries from the cron log and I'd like some way to filter them at the source. Is this something that cron itself is doing 'for' me?

I was unable to find anything on this in the doc set, but I could have missed it.

TIA!

Re: misclog evm channel

The only mentions of misclog in that document imply that it's for evm to report events about itself.

In any case, it looks like the /etc/syslog_evm.conf file SHOULD do what I want - limit posting of lpr and cron EVM events, but I can't seem to make it work.
I've changed the lpr and cron entries in this file to:
lpr.warning+
cron.warning+
and done a kill -HUP on syslogd and an evmreload. Afterwards, I'll still inundated with priority 200 lpr and cron EVM events. Does enyone have experience with tweaking this file?
