Question

How to create a new "Log Command", a command to see my logs.

Hey,

I’ve searched and i didn’t finf anything in support area. I’d like to creat a new command to see my server logs like “sv getlog”. To be more clear, i have a command “sv start” to start my emulator, and “sv shut” to turn it off. When i start it with sv start, it loads the server and show me all the logs, when players login, do anything i see there… So imagine that have just turned on my computer and the server ir online, the only way i have to see my logs is turning it of and then turn ir on. But i don’t wanna turn it off then on to see my logs, cause players must wait it to load emulator and turn on, got it? I just wanna creat a new command to get my logs in real time with no needing of turn my server off then on, know hwat mean ? Sorry for my bad english and thanks for help!!

sv does have a status option that should give you what you want.

viewing the man page at: http://smarden.org/runit/sv.8.html shows this option.

status Report the current status of the service, and the appendant log service if available, to standard output.
