The syslog facility to use, eg. local0...local7. 
Note: syslog logging is only used if you specify this.

The syslog priority to use, eg. debug, notice or info. 

So in your config file, set:
syslogfacility = local0
syslogpriority = debug

However, if your problem is the same as mine, the somkeping background
session which does all the PINGs just goes away and I never find
anything on the logs at all. All the graphs go quiet and I don't see any

I've noticed that the problem occurs most often when one or more hosts
are unreachable for long periods or (more likely) DNS craps out. But I
haven't nailed it down to anything specific yet.

Is there a way to turn on debugging while running smokeping.  It seems
to just die for no apparent reason randomly whenever it feels like it,
manual restarts of the script I found on the site seems to work for
awhile anyways.  Also it died on it's own if I just run the command
manually to start it.  Any help or insite would be greatly
appreciated...what would anyone need to help with this?
