Remote logging

Log settings for /var/log/messages

These settings change which events appear in the primary system log.

The text field allows you to change which program entries (known as "facilities") appear in the log. It also allows the severity for each program entry to be set individually, in case you wish to only see Error-level messages from one program, while you would like to see full Debug messages from another.
