+
+                <para><filename>systemd-journald</filename> is a
+                system service that collects and stores logging
+                data. It creates and maintains structured, indexed
+                journals based on logging information that is received
+                from the kernel, from user processes via the libc
+                <citerefentry><refentrytitle>syslog</refentrytitle><manvolnum>3</manvolnum></citerefentry>
+                call, from STDOUT/STDERR of system services or via its
+                native API. It will implicitly collect numerous meta
+                data fields for each log messages in a secure and
+                unfakeable way. See
+                <citerefentry><refentrytitle>systemd.journal-fields</refentrytitle><manvolnum>7</manvolnum></citerefentry>
+                for more information about the collected meta data.
+                </para>
+
+                <para>Log data collected by the journal is primarily
+                text based but can also include binary data where
+                necessary. All objects stored in the journal can be up
+                to 2^64-1 bytes in size.</para>
+
+                <para>By default the journal stores log data in
+                <filename>/run/log/journal/</filename>. Since
+                <filename>/run/</filename> is volatile log data is
+                lost at reboot. To make the data persistant it
+                is sufficient to create
+                <filename>/var/log/journal/</filename> where
+                <filename>systemd-journald</filename> will then store
+                the data.</para>
+
+                <para><filename>systemd-journald</filename> will
+                forward all received log messages to the AF_UNIX
+                SOCK_DGRAM socket
+                <filename>/run/systemd/journal/syslog</filename> (if it exists) which
+                may be used by UNIX syslog daemons to process the data
+                further.</para>
