If you are used to Linux systems, you know that logfiles are usually located in /var/log/ - but there is only three files in that directory on OpenWrt:
root@OpenWrt:~# ls /var/log/ lastlog messages wtmp root@OpenWrt:~# cat /var/log/* Sep 21 15:56:26 OpenWrt syslog.info syslogd started: BusyBox v1.11.2 root@OpenWrt:~#
So, to read the logfile from syslogd you should use the
command, which outputs the messages in syslogd's circular buffer.
