Example of how to use logging for both screen and file

Hi list,

Could someone help me figure out what is wrong here ?? I'd like to use
logging to send logs to syslogd as well as a file. The file logging
seems to be fine, but why don't I see anything in '/var/log/messages'
??
======================================
import logging, logging.handlers

def setupLogging():
   global flog, slog
   flog = logging.getLogger("mylog")
   slog = logging.getLogger("mylog.slog")

   flog.setLevel(logging.INFO)
   slog.setLevel(logging.INFO)

   filelog_hdlr = logging.FileHandler('/tmp/mylog')
   syslog_hdlr  = logging.handlers.SysLogHandler()

   flog.addHandler(filelog_hdlr)
   slog.addHandler(syslog_hdlr)

setupLogging()


flog.info("##################### foo #####################")
slog.debug("################## bar ####################"")
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
my syslog.conf says:
*.*           /var/log/messages
======================================


Regards
Steve
