All syslog messages would have a severity level attached to it.

Warning and informational are tagged as 4 & 6 respectively

eg.

4w4d: %CDP-4-NATIVE_VLAN_MISMATCH: Native VLAN mismatch discovered on FastEthern

et2/0/6 (2), with MS_L3_M5 FastEthernet2/0/23 (1).

The 4 above shows that the log is a warning level log

I do not understand what do you exactly mean..

These logs can be sent to some syslog monitors and most of them support exporting them as a CSV file
