Manual page for DMESG(8)

dmesg - collect system diagnostic messages to form error log

SYNOPSIS

/usr/etc/dmesg [ - ]

DESCRIPTION

Note: dmesg is obsoleted by syslogd.8 for maintenance of the system error log.

dmesg looks in a system buffer for recently printed diagnostic messages and prints them on the standard output. The messages are those printed or logged by the system when errors occur. If the `-' flag is given, then dmesg computes (incrementally) the new messages since the last time it was run and places these on the standard output.

FILES

/var/adm/msgbuf
scratch file for memory of `-' option
