/var/adm/messages vs /var/log/messages


The /var/adm/messages in Solaris seem to log more system messages/errors compared to /var/log/messages in Linux.

I checked the log level in Linux and they seem OK.

Is there any other log file that contains the messages or is it just that Linux doesn't log great many things?

If you're running syslog, then the level of detail, contents, and the destination are configured in /etc/syslog.conf

info syslog.conf should get you started.

I don't know much about Solaris so can't do the comparison for you.

come to that, I don't know much about Linux either!
