The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 1359
syslog messages from read_socket_data have too high a priority level
Last modified: 2005-02-11 07:39:46 UTC
My logs are full of messages
May 13 13:57:19 frogserver smbd: [2004/05/13 13:57:19, 0]
May 13 13:57:19 frogserver smbd: read_socket_data: recv failure for 4.
Error = Connection reset by peer
which seem to be logged at a syslog priority of "err"
These messages seem to be fairly boring, and not indicative of a
failure withing Samba. Could the syslog priority level be reduced to
"warning", "info" or "debug"?
These can be pretty important. You might wanmt to refer to bug 1257
for some details on how to prevent XP clients from generating
so many messages.
Out logging does need to be overhauled, but is lower on the
priority list at the moment.
