class SYS.LogDmn extends %SYSTEM.Help

Management functionality for the log daemon. All the methods that modify the state of the log daemon require USE permission for the %Admin_Manage resource.

The log daemon is the LOGDMN routine. At predetermined intervals it scans various sources of logs (mgr/messages.log, Audit DB, etc), rewrites the messages in a specified format (name-value pairs or JSON) and sends them through a pipe to be consumed by an external program.
