[edit] Usage Examples

Just install the sp-error-visualizer package and it will immediately start tracking syslogged messages. It's also started automatically on bootup. If syslog is not running, it provides itself the syslog socket for the applications.

The error visualizer can be disabled by running the following command or uninstalling the package.
