I would like to clarify if turning on the syslog.global.loghost and set this to the syslog server, Im getting over 6,000 messages per hour to my syslog server and they are informational only.

Can I configure ESXi to only send errors and warnings only, not information!

thanks

with ESXi it seems very difficult to get the Syslog to send specific details.
