How to use local logging

    Hi!

    Can somebody give me a brief explanation on how to use the local logging feature in HyperWRT (Thibor 15c)? Turning it on is obvious, of course, but where/how can I look at the logs? I'm having difficulties with my DSL modem and would like to have a look at PPPoE connection statistics.
    Thanks!

    local logging logs to "/var/log/messages"

    Hi Carl!

    Thank you very much for your quick answer. Is the filesize of "/var/log/messages" limited, or do the entries expire after a certain period of time and, thus, get overwritten?

    the logs rotate, messages becomes messages.0, messages.1, etc
