Using Facility Codes with Log Messages


Log messages are labeled with a facility code indicating the area of the software that generated the log message.


Netvisor One uses the following facility codes by default:


  • Log_Daemon for events and system messages
  • Log_AUDIT for audit messages


The following severity levels are used by default:


  • Log_INFO for events and audit messages
  • Log_Critical = critical
  • Log_ERROR = error
  • Log_WARNING = warn
  • Log_NOTICE = note


You can override the default values by configuring matches for each syslog configuration which allows Netvisor One to translate log messages into fields that the syslog servers understand.
