re: priority numbers

Postby Brad » Mon Oct 10, 2005 6:47 pm


New question.

Priority numbers. How do they correlate to the INFO DEBUG NOTICE WARNING ERR CRIT ALERT severity statuses? I'm writing my own web based app for viewing data from the database and I wasn't sure how the numbers coorespond.

Let me know. :) Thansk!

Urgent Question?

please see the lists below. They are from RFC 3164.

           0             kernel messages
           1             user-level messages
           2             mail system
           3             system daemons
           4             security/authorization messages (note 1)

           5             messages generated internally by syslogd
           6             line printer subsystem
           7             network news subsystem
           8             UUCP subsystem
           9             clock daemon (note 2)

          11             FTP daemon
          12             NTP subsystem
          13             log audit (note 1)
          14             log alert (note 1)
          15             clock daemon (note 2)
          16             local use 0  (local0)
          17             local use 1  (local1)
          18             local use 2  (local2)
          19             local use 3  (local3)
          20             local use 4  (local4)
          21             local use 5  (local5)
          22             local use 6  (local6)
          23             local use 7  (local7)

           Table 1.  syslog Message Facilities

        Note 1 - Various operating systems have been found to utilize
           Facilities 4, 10, 13 and 14 for security/authorization,
           audit, and alert messages which seem to be similar.
        Note 2 - Various operating systems have been found to utilize
           both Facilities 9 and 15 for clock (cron/at) messages.

   Each message Priority also has a decimal Severity level indicator.
   These are described in the following table along with their numerical

        Numerical         Severity

           0       Emergency: system is unusable
           1       Alert: action must be taken immediately
           2       Critical: critical conditions
           3       Error: error conditions
           4       Warning: warning conditions
           5       Notice: normal but significant condition
           6       Informational: informational messages
           7       Debug: debug-level messages

           Table 2. syslog Message Severities

Hi Brad,

We have a syslog based web interface called phpLogCon

May I ask you if you are missing any functionality because of the reason that you develop your own application? Perhaps you want to use phpLogCon as a starting point for further development?

I tried it once before, and the install errored out on me. I got frustrated and bailed on it.

I just tried it again and it was able to go in, but after looking at it, I find it a little complicated for managers. It's a good tool for network admins, but I have managers that want a simplified dumbed down version. I find this alot with all web based apps so I just go in, take the database, and make my own. I only show managers what they want to see, but at the same time, I get brownie points and it keeps me busy and justifies my salary. :)

But, yours has all but one feature that mine has. I have what I call "hostmasking". Basically, instead of listing ips and fqdn's for servers, I added a feature where I can tell the app that and where ever that is called, to call it something else. It's more of a logical scheme so that admins and managers who don't know what the servers ips are, can easily see oh... that's the "firewall", instead of seeing They wouldn't know what is... but they understand "firewall".

Your app looks a lot better than I remember it, and I have it on my list if any admins would rather use it. But so far, I just need basic info. Maybe some reporting tools. Here's a couple screenshots if your interested. I'll repost as soon as they are online. :)

The forum won't let me post links to the actual screenshots... maybe it'll let me do a url...

Macintosh's refusal to permit Adobe Flash on its cell phones, in particular the iPad and iPhone, has seen the organization gone under a considerable measure of flame since the primary iPhone was discharged in 2007. While Apple demands that Flash is a diminishing organization, numerous in the business think it represents a danger to the predominance of Apple's iTunes store, and would enable anybody to make applications for the telephone without Apple's endorsement. Apple as of now offers help to HTML5 in its web program, and this new programming dialect opens up a radical new domain of online applications for versatile Internet gadgets. We should take Google's electronic email, Gmail, for instance. For proprietors of an iPhone, Gmail was gotten to through a Gmail application downloaded from the iTunes store. That application was composed, and after that Apple needed to affirm it before it could be dispersed to clients. Further, to utilize the application, clients needed to experience an amplified procedure in enrolling for iTunes, signing in, downloading the application and introducing it. So how does HTML5 change that? Rather than experiencing the way toward downloading the application, clients can go straight to the Gmail site through their web program and utilize it as though they were on a PC.
Thanks& regards,
