The blogd daemon determines the real underlying character device of /dev/console. Blogd spawns a pty/tty pair to reconnect the current /dev/console with the slave of the pty/tty pair. During writing information from this slave to the real character device a ring buffer is used to hold the information for writing it to an existing logging file.
