Enabling syslog informational logging without seeing VPN teardowns

Is there a way to setup syslogging on a pix or asa, so that my syslog server doesn't get flooded with VPN information?  Right now it is set to emergencies. Because when I use the informational type of logging, I get all of the VPN info.

I just want to see log ins, log outs, user changes etc etc.

Thanks in advance

The easiest way would be to configure the firewall to exclude certain messages by ID - check out this link on Cisco's web site:

Sure... you enter the message ID you do NOT want to record one line at a time prefixed by the word 'no'. For example, if you don't care about a VPN client with no split-tunneling enabled and don't want to know when a Phase 1 retrans or keep-alive is received, you'd get into configuration mode and create four entries, one each for message ID 611301, 611302, 702204, and 715075:

no logging message 611301
no logging message 611302
no logging message 702204
no logging message 715075
