Re: syslog

Hi RKumar,

Looks like an app writing to syslog rather than the OS.

Re: syslog

This has nothing to do with Oracle - Oracle doesn't write to the syslog...

However as already pointed out, this isn't anything to do with the system - it's coming from some application which someone has coded to write to syslog. You should talk to the folks that support the app on this box and ask them for an explanation...
