Configuring Severity Level

You can use more than one command to configure the severity level of the messages sent to a target.

When you specify a severity level as you associate a filter with a target, you further restrict the messages reaching that target. The filter may allow only certain categories of messages to pass. Only the messages that pass the filter and then pass the specified severity level reach the target.

Finally, you can specify the severity levels of messages that reach the target by associating a filter with a target. The filter can specify exactly which message it will pass. Constructing a filter is described in Filtering By Components and Conditions.
