swapfile space notification

Running tru64 5.1a (latest aggregate patch) on alphaserver 4100. Had a problem with the swapfile:
vmunix: swap space below 10 percent free
on /var/adm/messages. Is there some way of routing the messages to the root? I normally don't check the messages file on a regular basis.
Thanks

Re: swapfile space notification

I think you would have to add the following line to /etc/syslog.conf:

kern.debug root

Refer to manpages syslog.conf and syslogd for details.

Forgot to mention that you have to:

# kill -HUP

after you make the change.
