One thing that I don’t hear people talk about is Apples new unified (system wide) logging system, introduced with Sierra, and that to me is odd, because it is totally different. I mean. You can forget about terminal commands like
cat /var/log/system.log and we (developer, hackers et all) need to get ready for Sierra. We need to embrace
sudo log (see man log) and get accustomed to all new (sub) commands and filter options. And quite a few I tell you, so start reading this document and Predicate Format String Syntax.
The Console app in the Utilities folder has also been updated, but I never really liked it, and I can’t tell (yet) if that will change. Always been more a keyboard hammer type of person. Thanks to my father I guess.
Nope. I am not going to retype the man page. You can read it yourself. Just type
man log in a terminal window and start playing with your new toy 😉
p.s. Let me know if and what (sub) command you
like use most…
