Re: logging for vpn

"informational" is the severity level, and it's severity level 6.

"trap" means that the logging is supposed to be sent to a syslog server if you have the syslog server configured (this is configured using the "logging host" command).

If you woud like to see the logs on the monitor, the command is "logging monitor", and if you would like to see the logs in the ASA bufffer: "logging buffered", etc.

Here is a list of the command reference that you can configure for different types of loggings:

And here is the name of the severity level with the actual level, and it also includes which syslog messages are included in which severity level:

Hope that helps.
