        -f | --facility facility  -t | --type  event_type
        [  -s  |  --severity severity ] [ -m | --message message-
       string ] [ -b | --binary attr_type attr_value  ...]


       The evlsend utility lets you send an event message to  the


       -f, --facility facility
              Facility to record in the event record. This option
              must be specified, and the facility must be  speci­
              fied in the Facility Registry.

       -t, --type event_type
              Specify  the  event  type  to  record  in the event
              record. This option must be specified.

       -s, --severity severity
              Severity to record in the  event  record.  If  this
              option  is not specified, then the default severity
              is INFO. Valid severity values  are  EMERG,  ALERT,
              CRIT, ERR, WARNING, NOTICE, INFO, and DEBUG.

       -m, --message message-string
              Specifies   that   the   variable  data  format  is
              POSIX_LOG_STRING and logs the  message.  Not  valid
              with the --binary option.

       -b, --binary attr_type attr_value . . .
              Specifies   that   the   variable  data  format  is
              POSIX_LOG_BINARY.  Not  valid  with  the  --message
              option. attr_type and attr_value must both be spec­
              ified, and multiple pairs of these  two  parameters
              can be specified.  Each type/value pair specifies a
              value to be packed (without padding for  alignment)
              into the variable portion of the event record.  The
              list of type/value pairs may optionally  be  termi­
              nated with an attr_type of endofdata, which is dis­
              carded.  Any attr_type that starts with a dash  (-)
              terminates  the  list  and is interpreted as a com­
              mand-line option.

              The --binary option  supports  the  following  data
              types: char, uchar, short, ushort, int, uint, long,
              ulong, longlong, ulonglong, address, float, double,
              ldouble, string, wchar, wstring.

              Integral  values (including char, uchar, wchar, and

       Logging a string:
              evlsend -f LOCAL3 -s INFO -t 61 -m "Log this string"

       Logging binary data:
              evlsend --facility LOCAL5 --type 65 -binary uchar 0x22 string "Log
              this string too, but use default severity."
