The default logging facility is Local4. To get general-level events, log level informational - if that doesn't give you what you want increase to debug.

If you just want system level events, use level 4 or 5
monitor you logs and see if you are getting too much information or not enough.
If too much, then drop to level 3 or 4

Hi,
I will recomand you to start with level 6 - Informational -. Investigate the messages you want. Syslog server put by every message the level. If you want only specific info you can finetune to this level.

Good Luck !
