Hi. This is my first post.

How can I save SYSLOG as text data via PCOMM in the 3287 printer definition?

I remember that over 20 years ago in the data center, a 6262 printer was continuously outputting SYSLOG.
I'm thinking it would be convenient if such a thing could be done in tk4-, where SYSLOG is output in the \log folder.

Code:
[SYSLOG]--->>[VTAM]-->>[TN3270]---->>>>[PCOMM/printer]-->>SYSLOG(text file, streaming data)



Looking at the SYSLOG output of tk4-, it seems to be directly defined as a printer in \conf\tk4.cnf.
However, I think this is a feature of Hercules.

030E 1403 log/hardcopy.log ${TK4CRLF}


Is this possible?

Thank you.

You might look at using the WRITE LOG command to save it to a dataset periodically.

Or possibly the External Writer XWTR

Thank you.
I know "Write Log" "SDSF PT" "XWTR"

I want to forward SYSLOG to file servers, etc., with as little impact on z/OS as possible. Near real-time.
(by hardcopy console printer. can you understand?? Any ideas? )

I’m Japanese and not good at English. Waiting for your response.

regards

OK I understand. I found the below but not sure if it's what you need. It may not be available on your level of MVS:

Thank you. However, unfortunately, the URL you introduced does not seem to be a solution for z/OS.
I found a manual for OSA-ICC, so I might understand if I read this.
publibz.boulder.ibm.com/epubs/pdf/ioa2dp00.pdf

I will read it a little and think about it.
