I am aware that messages on OS X are usually logged in the ASL database which then (based on asl.conf) are also written into files like /var/log/system.log

Based on this comment I tried (and failed) to figure out why messages from sshd are available in /var/log/system.log but are not accessible with e.g. /usr/bin/syslog -k Facility | grep 'sshd'

Any ideas?

  • strangely enough, I was able to get a couple of sshd messages to show up using syslog -k Facility -k Sender sshd but they were totally unhelpful different than what showed up in /var/log/system.log! – Michael Oct 14 '15 at 22:57
