you could use logger statements in the script:


NAME
logger - a shell command interface to the syslog(3) system log module

SYNOPSIS
logger [-isd] [-f file] [-p pri] [-t tag] [-u socket] [message ...]

DESCRIPTION
Logger makes entries in the system log. It provides a shell command interface to the syslog(3) system log
module.

Options:

-i Log the process id of the logger process with each line.

-s Log the message to standard error, as well as the system log.

-f file Log the specified file.

-p pri Enter the message with the specified priority. The priority may be specified numerically or as a
``facility.level'' pair. For example, ``-p local3.info'' logs the message(s) as informational level
in the local3 facility. The default is ``user.notice.''

-t tag Mark every line in the log with the specified tag.

-u sock Write to socket as specified with socket instead of builtin syslog routines.

-d Use a datagram instead of a stream connection to this socket.

-- End the argument list. This is to allow the message to start with a hyphen (-).

message Write the message to log; if not specified, and the -f flag is not provided, standard input is
logged.

The logger utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
