yes, if you log a level you include all lower levels. 7 is the highest, you log everything, but you'd get a log file very huge and almost not usable. You'd better set level 4 (warning) and you can use Kiwi syslog software which has as well a free edition which is usually enough

max is correct.  level 4 is sufficient for monitoring.
