syslog on a catalyst

Quick question please - i have setup syslog on a 5500 to a syslog server on a Solaris machine. The config is

set logging server enable

set logging server

set logging server facility LOCAL7

set logging server severity 6

set logging timestamp enable

Does this ensure that all severity 6 and higher [6-0] will get logged to the syslog server? I had the "sys" facility at 5 (the default) and it did not log. I have changed it to 6 and now it does.

Why does it not operate when set to 5 if it is supposed to report from 6 to 0?

If you have to set facilities like sys and spantree to severity 6, do you have to set everything to severity 6 to get it reported? If so, why have different severities at all?

Thanks for any input - appreciated.
