Messages Logged When Local Severity Level Is Lower

When the severity level is lower for local messages than for forwarded messages, the log on the TX Matrix platform includes fewer forwarded messages than when the severities are the same. Locally generated messages are still logged at the lower severity level, so their number in each log is the same as when the severities are the same.

For example, you can specify severity notice for the /var/log/messages file and severity critical for forwarded messages

[edit system syslog]
file messages {
	any notice;
}
host scc-master {
	any critical;
}

Table 1 specifies which messages are included in the logs on the T640 routing nodes and the TX Matrix platform. The T640 routing nodes forward only those messages with severity critical and higher, so the log on the TX Matrix platform does not include the messages with severity error, warning, or notice that the T640 routing nodes log locally:
