I have the following entries in the /etc/syslog.conf file on an AIX 6.1 system...

kern.debug      /var/adm/syslog/kern    rotate files 12 time 1m
user.debug      /var/adm/syslog/user    rotate files 12 time 1m
mail.debug      /var/adm/syslog/mail    rotate files 12 time 1m
daemon.debug    /var/adm/syslog/daemon  rotate files 12 time 1m
auth.debug      /var/adm/syslog/auth    rotate files 12 time 1m
syslog.debug    /var/adm/syslog/syslog  rotate files 12 time 1m
lpr.debug       /var/adm/syslog/lpr     rotate files 12 time 1m
news.debug      /var/adm/syslog/news    rotate files 12 time 1m
uucp.debug      /var/adm/syslog/uucp    rotate files 12 time 1m
*.debug @xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
My understanding is that the last statement will send all .debug messages to the syslog daemon running on the system at the address specified by xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx. Furthermore, the preceding nine lines have no bearing on the last line. In other words, the last line does not require the preceding lines. Is that correct?
