My PIX log is as below.  

Does anybody know the mean of "20,6," and "[0x1273973, 0x297448de]" ?

There are two date and time. I guess one for log server, another for PIX. Is it correct?

If anybody would be willing to help, it would be greatly appreciated!

"2009-03-17,00:00:05,172.31.1.14,20,6,"

This is all data pre-pended by your syslog server.  I think "6" refers to the severity level; I'm not sure about the "20".

"[0x1273973, 0x297448de]"

I think this is data appended by your syslog server.  The message you posted should end after "first hit".

The 20 is the facility (Local4 in this case).  The 6 is the severity level (informational in this case).
