3.6. Introduction to RTA's Built-in Tables

The RTA library has several built-in tables. Appendix A has the full details, so we will introduce them here. The first table has only one row.

3.6.1. rta_dbg

The rta_dbg table lets you control how and what is logged.

You can also specify the priority, facility, and ident values for syslog(). From psql we get:

# select * from rta_dbg;
 syserr | rtaerr | sqlerr | trace | target | priority | facility | ident
--------+--------+--------+-------+--------+----------+----------+-------
 1      | 1      | 1      | 0     | 1      | 3        | 8        | rta
