Couldn't address the correct reference for the severity level


Which severity level are notify messages logged on a BIG-IP device?

There are the following options:
5
6
4
3

I found an f5 article where it displayed the types of security levels: The possible security levels, from least to most severe are Debug, Informational, Notice, Warning, Error, Critical, Alert, and Emergency but it does not address any kind of severity level throughout the F5 article.

  • Hello Nishal_Rai.

    You are right! I know what levels you mean now.

    This is the equivalence

     

    0 - Emergency (emerg)
    1 - Alert (alert)
    2 - Critical (crit)
    3 - Error (err)
    4 - Warning (warning)
    5 - Notice (notice)
    6 - Informational (info)
    7 - Debug (debug)

  • Hello Nishal_Rai.

    Log levels are defined by words (Debug, Informational, Notice, Warning, Error, Critical, Alert, and Emergency), not by numbers...

    I think you mean the lcdwarn levels:

    [0|1|2|3|4|5] or [warning|error|alert|critical|emergency|information].

    Could you confirm?

  • Hello Dario_Garrido,

    Thank you for your kind response but, I am still in dilemma. The question is particularly about the severity level that the notify messages logged on a BIG-IP device learned. On the basis of your provided link, it does address the range of log level following with certain words but I am still unsure about the above question like is it informational - level 5 or the other.
