Ok, understood.

One more question please.

I have a bundle with three services on it. These three services run constantly together. So, i want to make an unique logger for these three services rather than creating a logger for each one. But, i'm a little confused about how to do this with the better design.

I need to create a anonymous pipe with piperw then i redirects the output of these three services on it then i apply a s6-log on it?!
Maybe using a another software suite can be better?
Creating a fifo file than having a s6-log watching on it?

Wich is the best way to do what i want?

Note : More i works why your software and more i like it :), you have maded a beautiful system and i don't understand all the possibilities lol.
