Description CHAO Shin 2008-11-28 07:40:03 UTC
Our applications want to use the syslog to log, but if our log's encoding is utf-8, the log content became unreadble. It looks like that FreeBSD's syslogd(8) would just filter characters that have their highest bit set Fix: N/A

State Changed From-To: open->closed From what I know we do not support utf/8 related things yet. So that explains thatyou cannot send utf-8 logs towards syslogd. There is work in progress to make this happen, lets wait for that. Thanks for trying to make freebsd better...

Hello! My proposal, to close request. UTF-8 looks fine in logs, in case of -8 flag for syslogd specified. For example, in rc.conf: syslogd_flags="-8" Example: Default settings: Oct 26 11:38:25 srv fetchmail: awakened at ×.M-^BÏ.M-^@ÎÉË, 26 ÏË.M-^B.M-^OÂ.M-^@.M-^O 2010 Ç. 11:38:25 Oct 26 11:38:26 srv fetchmail: sleeping at ×.M-^BÏ.M-^@ÎÉË, 26 ÏË.M-^B.M-^OÂ.M-^@.M-^O 2010 Ç. 11:38:26 for 120 seconds -8 flag specified: Oct 26 11:42:27 srv fetchmail: awakened at ×ÔÏÒÎÉË, 26 ÏËÔÑÂÒÑ 2010 Ç. 11:42:27 Oct 26 11:42:27 srv fetchmail: sleeping at ×ÔÏÒÎÉË, 26 ÏËÔÑÂÒÑ 2010 Ç. 11:42:27 for 120 seconds Best regards, Vadim
