Re: what is meant by log level

Hi rajesh,

Well I can take this question with a meaning like an intent log level size. There are four levels :- delaylog,tmplog,nolog and fulllog and accordingly you will have security and performance. Critical filesystems can have an intent log level of delaylog and very temporary ones with tmplog.

Intent log size can be seen with the command mkfs -F vxfs -m /dev/vg01/exampleitrc.

Well... that's one way of looking at your question.

Re: what is meant by log level


Yikes. *Exactly* what do you mean when you ask about a "log level"? VxFS logging, 'syslogd' log levels, increasing verbosity reported by the 'sshd' daemon? Define what you want to ask!
