I can field this question I think.

Many Linux distributions allow you to redirect the system messages you
normally get spammed with (such as unknown hsot name "loghost", etc.)
to a specific console. That way you can essentially "watch" what goes
into /var/log/messages on a Linux box on a specific virtual console
instead of having that output (rather inconveniently) go to the same
console as the one you are using (causing your vi session to be
annoyingly interrupted as an example).
