I was hoping someone could shed some light on this command for me. I am setting up a syslog server on all the switches ( 3524xl, 3550-48-SMI switches ) and not sure how to use a command. I've set the IP address of the server, set the service timestamps log (and debug) datetime msec localtime but I am confused on setting the facility command. Right now I have it set for logging facility local3 (seen it on another switch but not sure why it is set to local3). Can someone give a quick definition about the facility. Any recommendations on what it should be?
I've read the default is local7.
Thanks again for all your help,
