Bug#1833: firstname.lastname@example.org: patch for Debian sysklogd package]
Hallo Bruce Perens!
}Note that Stephen is the author of the Procmail and SmartList programs
}(which operate our list server). Turning off the fsync is indeed a big
}win on a machine that operates mailing list. There may be 4 syslog() calls
}for each subscriber every time a message goes to a mailing list. This
}ends up being continuous disk rattling.
}This switch solves the immediate problem, but making a way to tune this
}in syslog.conf would be even nicer.
So you would like to have something like
in the configuration file? The `-' indicating that the logfile
shouldn't be fsync'd?
I have to think about it some time.
